Today is Flashback Friday as a part of School Psychology Awareness Week! Today, try unlocking your potential by finding the password “Connect.” Sometimes we get into disagreements with others and we do not see their point of view. Today, let’s reflect on what it would feel like to be on the giving and receiving end of some of our previous actions. Let’s access our power of empathy (the ability to understand and share the feelings of another) and gratitude (readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness) to create broader understanding, acceptance, collaboration, thankfulness, and well-being in school.

Students, please remember that if your teacher assigns you a mandatory tutorial because were failing their class at progress report time, you must attend tutoring or it is a referral to the office. Please work with your teachers to schedule these tutorials so they do not conflict with other tutorials you have scheduled.

On November 11, 1921, an unidentified soldier who died during World War I was buried in Arlington National Ceremony outside of Washington, D.C. Since then, two  other unidentified soldiers, one who perished fighting in World War II and the other who passed away serving during the Korean War, were also buried in the tomb. A fourth unknown soldier from the Vietnam War was entombed in the site in 1984, but was later removed once DNA tests identified him as Michael Blassie. Michael Blassie was a 24-year-old Air Force pilot shot down in May 1972 and was later disinterred and reburied by his family in Missouri.

Timber Champagne is here for today’s Veteran’s announcement:

Originating with the first Armistice Day observance, it was common practice for people remembering those who served in World War I to wear a red poppy, symbolizing sacrifice.  The poppy's significance to today's observance is a result of Canadian military physician John McCrae's poem In Flanders Fields.  The poppy emblem was chosen because of the poppies that bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I. And their red color seemed an appropriate symbol for the bloodshed of trench warfare.  Veterans’ groups still distribute poppies for the observance, with some opting to wear white instead to symbolize the hope for peace.

Lunch: Line 1: Baked Potato Soup; Line 2: Chili Dog; Line 3: Chicken Empanada
