Good Morning Section 4!

This Monday meeting we will be talking about our goals for the upcoming third quarter. We want you to post some ACTION you will do to improve yourself academically.

Post your goal as a comment below. Some things to remember:

1. Make sure that you are honest with yourself. You will be the one effected by accomplishing this goal.

2. Make sure you are specific!

3. Make sure you are writing down an ACTION.

Here is an example of a goal that is acceptable:

"My goal is to ask two questions a week in math class so I can make sure I understand what we are learning."

Here is an example of a goal that is NOT acceptable:

"My goal is to study hard."

### We are a Fabulous Class!

Greetings Blue Team (we rock!):
Today for advisory we are going to use this blog, which is a wonderful invention, to share some good things we have seen each other do so far this week. When you post a compliment on our compliment page you should write one of the following possible comments:

1. Something that one of your classmates did to help you stay on task.
2. Something that another classmate did to help you understand a new topic in class.
3. Something that another classmate did to make sure you were prepared.
4. Something that another classmate did to make you feel better that day.
5. Something a classmate did academically that was AWESOME!

Remember to be specific about the action and also remember NO LAST NAMES! If you need to specify you may use a last initial (example: Brian F. or Bryan D.)

Compliment away! : )
