( Buddy the Elf)

One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day!
When it rains, look for rainbows. When it’s dark, look for stars!

Today is a good day to be HAPPY. Now is a good time to SMILE!
Get your work done and finish strong! This is a year you will tell your children and grandchildren about. Stay safe, both for your health and for those around you. Your teachers miss you!
Seniors, the Class of 2020 will be remembered! Keep your heads up and finish the year strong! You have so much to look forward to and celebrate! We are celebrating with you!
The sun is out and we are one day closer to getting back to a normal way of life. Keep being smart and following precautions and we'll get there sooner.
“A good laugh is sunshine in the house.” – William Makepeace Thackeray
Life is an echo. What you send out comes back to you!
This is your morning reminder that

The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.
James Taylor

In these stressful days, do something every day that helps you enjoy the passage of time.
Seniors- We miss you already. This is not the senior year you envisioned, but it will be one to tell your kids and grandkids about. Finish your classes, take good care of yourself and we really hope to see you at graduation, whenever that might be.

Trojan Academy students- a lot of you are making great progress in your online courses. Congrats and I'm proud of you!
Every day we are one day closer to the end of this madness. Do your part through social distancing, hand washing, etc. to bring us closer to ending this.
What are you doing to help get through these trying times? Share your ideas.
Social isolation has left a lot of people feeling truly isolated. With text, email and social media there are lots of ways to reach out to others. Contact someone today- a friend, relative, classmate or teacher (they miss you) just to see how they are doing. You'll both feel better.
Even when it's not easy, try to be the positive influence that those around you need right now. Be safe, be smart and remember that each day is one day closer to returning to normal.
What beautiful weather we’ve been having during such a difficult time! Hope everyone is enjoying it!

We are all capable of doing hard things!
I am thinking of all students and staff during this difficult time.

Mr. Wilson
As we go through these challenging times, it's more important than ever to be kind to one another. That includes following the experts' advice to slow the spread of the virus.
I personally think that YouUpliftKindness is a very “good” site that really “helps” me get through the day.
GOOD LUCK to the Lady Trojans in the sectional! We believe in you!!!
Congratulations to the Students of the Quarter!

Good luck to all students on finals! Show what you have learned, stay calm and focused and make yourself proud.
Joey Cargal, you are hilarious and great to be around.
Heleana Dersch is literally the sweetest person I know! She's always smiling, even when under a ton of stress. I always look forward to seeing her because she always brightens my day!
Everyone is under stress and it's magnified this time of year. Take a deep breath, take a walk, let it out and lower the drama level. Life is too short to get all worked up about things that, in the big picture, aren't all that important. Focus on what really is important- family, friends and taking care of one another.
7 days of school left this semester. Get your work done, prepare for finals and don't forget to be kind to each other. Everyone is facing the same stresses, so a little kindness is needed and can go a long way.
This time of year is tough for some people. Don't be afraid to reach out for help- there are people here who care about you. And don't hesitate to be kind to someone who is struggling.
A lot of students are working hard to finish the semester strongly. Good for you! Know that your hard work is recognized and appreciated.
The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book❤️
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
All things are difficult before they are easy... keep your head up everyone!
Great job, Lady Trojans!!!
Ms. Bretz, thank you for all of your work organizing and administering ISTEP. You make it about as painless as it can be.

Don't just tell yourself about the people you are thankful for- tell them.
Wishing everyone a safe, happy and restful Thanksgiving break.

You can choose one of three ways to display your messages onto a facility TV monitor.
  1. HDMI CORD – Some schools will access their Kindness eWall on a laptop and run an HDMI cord to their TV monitor.
