CMS Principal Update:  Oct. 30-Nov.3, 2017

October 29, 2017


Dear Triton Families,


This week’s Growth Mindset quote“You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say” Martin Luther King

Stand Up and Speak Out 

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!
