MMS Character Dare:  To kick off our school year, we are DARING students to do something every day that represents the core values of our school:  Responsibility, Respect, Enthusiasm, Safety, Empathy and Pride.  Posters are in classrooms and around the school with Character Dares on them.  Each dare is an idea for a way you can put one of our Core Values in action and make our school an awesome place for everyone. 

 

When students do one of the dares, they will fill out a slip with the CARES teacher and drop it in their collection box.  Throughout the week, we will keep track of how many dares each POD has completed.  The goal as a pod is to get 500 dares!  That means if everyone in the pod does four dares this week the goal will be met with no problem!  If a pod reaches its goal – donuts for everyone!

 

Our goal as a school is to do 5,000 dares this week!  If the school goal is reached, each grade level will have the opportunity to “Pie the Principal” during lunch!

 

We are excited to see students going out of their way to do things that are kind and encourage for others!
