Showing Gratitude Through Sharing

Spanish Fork Junior High Students know the best way to celebrate Thanksgiving is to share.  Students have been collecting food donations for a local food bank for the past week.  Bags were loaded up late this afternoon and loaded into the back of a pick-up for transport.  YES!  They filled the entire bed up!

Great job, SFJH students.  Needy families will find the holidays as little easier because of your generosity.

Put First Things First

Students from Lobo Leadership learn Covey's Habit #3 of Highly Effective Teens: Put First Things First.  This was taught by placing rocks (Have-to's), salt (Should-do's), and water (Want-to-do's) in three separate jars. We found that when we prioritize our activities and manage our time wisely, doing the things we have to do and the things we should do before doing what we want to do, we will be more effective in our daily lives.   We all have twenty-four hours in a day.  How will you use your time?
