Motivation Monday

 

Motivation Monday

First thing Monday morning, we like to set the tone for our week by showing a "Motivation Monday" video.  These videos help to spark conversation about our GRIT theme of the month and to reinforce the mindsets and behaviors of the school counseling curriculum. Watch these videos with your kiddos and ask them what they talked about during their classroom discussion.  Maybe they'll give you a little bit of motivation on Monday morning too!
