How we start the day can impact what we do during the day.
“Gooooooood morning, Achieve Language Academy! This is Mr. Lester with a few words of wisdom.”
That’s how we begin each day at Achieve – a rousing good morning by Mr. Lester, or someone else from the school. And a message follows through the words and ideas of Project Wisdom, one of the oldest and most respected character education programs in the nation. It is an exciting, research-based program that is currently licensed in over 19,000 schools nationwide.
Following the greeting, students are introduced to the theme of the day. The theme might be respect, bullying or kindness or it might focus on holidays like Labor Day, Thanksgiving or MLK Day. There are also messages about cultures and diversity.
A quote follows the intro, usually from someone significant to our country, the world or specifically to the theme for that message. This leads to a final statement about the theme and how they can respond to it at school or at home.
This 30-second to one-minute message always ends with a reminder that they – the students – have control of how they respond to what happens that day. Just ask your son or daughter what they hear every morning at the end of this daily message. They’ll tell you, “Make it a great day…. or not. The choice is yours!”
