Talkin' Tuesday - June 12, 2018

...where ALL students are UNIQUE and Wonderfully Made!
Time for POSITIVE ACTIONS!

Today is TALKIN TUESDAY where we see that our school family of teachers, staff, and community care 
about the students at
Warm Springs Intermediate School!

And, where we will take a Positive moment each week to 
"Talk It Out"
and discuss important student issues.

Welcome to your school community!  I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, June 12th, our LAST day of school this year!!  WOW...we did it!  CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU!  

LOOK!  At Morgan County "Day of Caring,"  YOU shared Positive Actions with ME...Mrs. Hott!  Thank you ALL for the beautiful cards and KIND words....and yes, I needed a tissue after reading these PAWsome messages.

Here, you can see where I create your daily Positive Action Community Vlogcasts all year...at my table!  Reading YOUR cards!  Have a wonderful summer, Mrs. Hott will see you soon!

Reading my beautiful cards from WSIS students for Morgan County Day of Caring!

Thank YOU!  YOU are a beautiful rainbow!

For today, Mrs. Hott thought it would be PAWsome to take a look at some super special memories made this year at Warm Springs Intermediate School!  

On yesterday's vlogcast, we got to see some students in 5th grade sharing their uniqueness.  Today, let's feature our third graders jamming along to one of my favorite songs!  Do you remember the words?




Remember, be "responsible" over the summer!

That was PAWsome!  Did you recognize anyone in that video?  

Keep watching.  Next I have a very special video to share with a community of folks that CARE a bunch for each of you.  This was a little later in our school year.  It shows that learning something NEW is a Positive Action!  Listen to this great group of people singing about our beautiful community:  WEST VIRGINIA!
Remember, learn NEW things this summer too!

Finally, when you are away from WSIS, be sure to choose POSITIVE ACTIONS!  In closing, stand up, push in your chairs and sing along with Violet and the BSHS Interact Club!


Have a POSITIVE summer!  Mrs. Hott will miss you!

Welcome to Positive Actions Community Character Vlogcasts!  Today is Monday, June 11th, 2018!!!

WoooooHooooo....It's time for (thumbs up everyone!):  POSITIVE ACTIONS!

NEWS FLASH!  Before we begin, check out local heroes working hard to clean up after that crazy flood we had last week.  Our town pool was featured in Channel 25, WDVM News!  Are you ready to hang out at the pool this summer???  Well, now, with help from some super PAWsome friends like Abby Wood, the pool is ready for YOU!  See.....

This has been a PAWsome school year!  Here on our Positive Actions Community Vlogcast Channel AND in the Cougar Den, we have had some FUN learning about ourselves and a community that cares about us!  For today, let's take a look waaaaaaaay back at the beginning of the year and peak in to Ms. Surface's 5th graders.  Remember when we were defining our unique and wonderfully made individual qualities?  


This summer, Mrs. Hott wants YOU to remember how special you are too!   

Do YOU know that "the way we think about ourselves controls how happy, healthy, and successful we will be"?  In Positive Actions over the summer, continue to remember that we each have beautiful, unique, and wonderful characteristics that are all important and valuable to our Cougar Community, here, at school, and at home.

Now, for today's vlogcast, we will see our magical, musical sing-along with our featured school community one last time this year!    
Please welcome....

WSIS Positive Action Singers

singing to "Mr. Cable's Cougar Creed" 
Our teachers and/or students are invited to strum-along with their instruments and jam with your community and sing loudly to Mr. Cable's Cougar Creed.......and please, sing louder than Mrs. Hott. 







MR. CABLE'S COUGAR CREED
(chorus)
I can be kind
And caring too
For others and for me
It’s the right thing to do
I know that my home, school, and community
Have people who care about me

I know I am unique
There’s only one like me
Filled with valuable qualities
I’m made wonderfully
(chorus)

When I get up for school
I think of that Golden Rule
Treating others just and fair
Will show students I care

Be nice, be kind, be strong
We all want to get along
To make today the best
To all, I show respect
(chorus)

Positive Actions, I will choose
Helping others and my school
Get us all to reach our goals
With safe, responsible roles

We are all Cougars that Care
At school, at home, and play
Students can change the world
Beginning with today
(chorus)

Yay!  You ALL sound "PAW"some!!!  Did you sing louder than Mrs. Hott?  Great job!  

Thanks for joining in and singing "Mr. Cable's Cougar Creed"! Was that fun?  If time, try to sing again...just fast forward pass the intro and sing-along.

BONUS "IN THE NEWS": Here is Ms. Nikki from the Morgan County Partnership.  Look!  She got YOUR cards we made that list what YOU see that needs help at home, school, and our community.  We will be working on these ideas for you over the summer and look forward to returning next year!  Thank you all for these PAWsome ideas!

Community Cougars that CARE! with Erich May - June 8, 2018

...where ALL students are UNIQUE and Wonderfully Made!

Time for POSITIVE ACTIONS!

Today is FUN FRIDAY where we see that our community cares about the students at
Warm Springs Intermediate School

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, June 8th!! Who is excited for Summer Vacation coming up SOON!  It's almost here, right?  This has been a PAWsome school year, hasn't it!  To close, we will visit a friend in our Morgan County community that has some very important "words of wisdom" to share with the children at Warm Springs Intermediate School...here they are:


"Be kind, be kind, be kind!"

Being KIND is a Positive Action!  How will YOU be kind to others at school, and over the summer?  Let's see some more...Each Fun Friday in Positive Actions, we will meet a friend in our community that cares about YOU!  For today, meet.... (drum roll please.......)
 Mr. Erich May! 

Mr. May is the Superintendent of Schools for Morgan County!  Cutie and I got to visit him at the Morgan County Board of Education offices, where he shared some Positive Actions.  Do you remember what Mr. May wanted to be when he was a little boy?  Listen and see,

Here is today's video vlog from Mrs. Hott: 


Did you hear what Mr. May wanted to be when he was little?  
A Rock Star!  Rock On!

Some days are challenging, right? But like Mr. May said, an "ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE" is a Positive Action!  

Here are a few questions for you:  
1)  Think about someone in your family.  Tell your teacher one Positive Action that person did recently.
2)  Now, think about someone here in our school community.  What is one Positive Action you saw that you liked?  Next, be sure to tell that person "thanks!" for being Positive!  And, let Mr. May know you have an "ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE" just like he does!
3)  And, think about someone from your neighborhood or community.  What Positive Action did you see that person do?  THANK them too!  YOU can make someone's day when they hear YOU say "thanks!"
(Share answers with each other.)

Remember, it is a Positive Action to follow the Golden Rule because changing the world starts with one student at a time...and that is.....


YOU!



(close with Golden Rule and sing along when ready!)

CONFIDENCE - Raising the Roof

...on student assets!  
Where ALL students are UNIQUE and WONDERFULLY MADE!

Today is Raising Student Assets Thursday!

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, June 7th! As we continue to improve our positive thoughts, actions and feelings, today we will take a look at raising student assets and a super important positive action word(s):

CONFIDENCE

Tell your teacher what you think the word "CONFIDENCE" means. 
"a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities"

CONFIDENCE.  What does "CONFIDENCE" look like? Today's video takes a look at a whole bunch of students describing "confidence."  Watch this video:


Now, it's YOUR turn.  What do YOU think CONFIDENCE is?  Tell your teacher something you are confident in doing?  

And remember, it is also important to know that here at Warm Springs Intermediate School, we are all part of a "cougar community" where positive actions start with...


YOU!

CONFIDENCE - Video Vednesdays for June 6, 2018

...where ALL students are UNIQUE and Wonderfully Made!

Today is VALUE VIDEO "V"EDNESDAY!  

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, June 6th!  On Wednesdays, we will be examining Value Video Vednesdays when we will take a look at positive values to help us grow into a caring cougar community of students at Warm Springs Intermediate School.  

Today's video takes a look at a student who is positive when they are CONFIDENT.  I imagine we have a few student dancers at school getting ready for their end of year recitals, right?  YOU are going to LOVE this super cute video for sure!

Confidence means:  "a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation and trust of one's own abilities or qualities" 

Each of YOU have done amazing things this year at school!  The knowledge and skills your teachers have given you will help you be successful not just in school (or academics) but also in your communities (socially and with friends). 

Maybe you are finishing school work for your teacher,...have CONFIDENCE that you will do you best.  Maybe you are participating in spring sports,...have CONFIDENCE in your skills.  Or, maybe you are dancing in an upcoming recital,...have CONFIDENCE that all your hard work and training will result in a great performance!....

Watch today's VALUE VIDEO VEDNESDAY, and talk about who illustrates Confidence :



Let's talk about it.  Were you surprised?  Why?

Discuss who showed a Positive Thought?

Who shows a Positive Action?

What is the Positive Feeling you have when you see this video?

Now, think of a person who you know that shows CONFIDENCE. What did he/she do? 

Today, Mrs. Hott wants you to do a Positive Action too!  Try it!

Now, it's YOUR turn.  Here is your "kindness" positive action for today:

Next, trace your hand.
Write the words "KINDNESS MATTERS" in your hand picture.
Decorate, color, make YOUR Kind hand unique...just like YOU!
Finally, your Positive Action today is to give a "kind hand" to someone who needs it!  Think of 
someone YOU can make smile today by sharing KINDNESS.
