Mission Monday: September 13

We will continue Mission Monday this year, here is information about Mission Mondays at GM: 

Mission Monday is an endeavor that will provide our school with actionable steps we can take every week to enhance our school community. Each week will be a different mission for students to work on. The mission of the week will be sent out to families in a Principal E-News on Sunday nights. It will then be announced to students and staff on Monday morning during announcements. Every mission will be observable and it will never be about an attitude, it should be about an action. Some examples may include “Saying ‘Hi’ to someone new each day.” “Say ‘thank you’ to the cafeteria staff every day this week.” “Leave every place cleaner than you found it.” These are intentional acts of kindness, not random acts of kindness. With Mission Monday, we intend to make our school a better place, one week at a time. Look for the first mission to be sent out this Sunday.

Just remember - “We are the Superlarks and that’s what we do!” #missionaccomplished


Mission for the week of September 13-17:

Take time to hold the door open for someone and say "HI"! Remember that everyone has value! Parents, please read this story below and share with your students or someone in the community!

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $100 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. "Who would like this $100 bill?"

Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $100 to one of you - but first, let me do this."

He proceeded to crumple the $100-dollar bill up. He then asked. "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.

"Well," he replied, "what if I do this?" He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.

He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson.

No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $100.

Many times, in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.

We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you.

The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do, what we have or who we know, but by...WHO WE ARE.

You are so special in all the world there is only one you -- don't ever forget it.

Remember, you may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
