One Word

Feb. 03, 2017


As part of our partnership with Classroom Champions, the HSMS 8th grade students work to set and reach goals and aspirations. For the new year, rather than setting those traditional New Year resolutions, we took on the One Word challenge from the book Life Word, Discover Your One Word to Leave a Legacy by Gordon, Britton and Page. Each student has selected a word that will set their positive intention for the year. Each slide represents how that word will impact our life. Our class word is Connect, and we are glad to share this and make the connection with each of you!

Mrs. Ilko and the HSMS 8th grade class.
