CMS Principal Update:  Nov. 6-10, 2017



November 5, 2017


Dear Triton Families,


This week’s Growth Mindset quote:  “If you blame others for your failures, do you credit them for your achievements?

This week’s KEY:  OWNERSHIP

Take responsibility for your actions.  Own the choices you make and the results that follow.  When we take responsibility for our choices, others will know that they can count on us.  We may not be able to control everything, but we can control how we respond to what happens.

Take ownership – take pride, and be confident in your choices!
