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


I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, Oct. 16, 2019!  On Wednesdays, we will be examining Value Video "V"ednesdays when we will take a look at positive values to help us grow into a caring school community of students in Morgan County, WV.  

Our beautiful "Where in Morgan County Are PAWsitive Action?" t-shirts have arrived!!!  Be sure to play every Wednesday and enter YOUR guess where Mrs. Hott and Mrs. Sheima are in Morgan County!  Keep watching for the next set of winners!  Widmyer too!  We will be filming a special drawing just.for.you! LOOK!

Today's video takes a look at a student with a positive CHARACTER.  It is a Positive Action to treat yourself and others as a treasure, even when no one else is looking, (and also anytime your teacher is absent and you have a sub); because it's the right thing to do!

When we work on our character development, we are making positive choices to become student with good moral and ethical qualities, that offer benefit to a better community here at school and home.  

Watch today's VALUE VIDEO VEDNESDAY, and talk about which students illustrate CHARACTER; then, stay tuned for the "final 30" seconds and see if YOU know: 

"Where in Morgan County Are PAWsitive Actions?"

Let's talk about it.

First of all, what is the Negative Action we see in this video? 

Ok, so...Mrs. Hott wants to discuss something important now.  After the student pushes the other's books on the hallway floor, that student then laughs and walks down the hall.  This makes me feel so sad at that moment.  Why do you think he laughs?

This video makes me upset when I see that negative action, knocking down his books AND when I see that student laughing.  He does NOT have a Positive CHARACTER.  Do you know that anytime we act this way, we are also negative too?  Maybe we have not pushed another student's books out of his hands in the hall; but, if we have EVER done something like.... 
*snickered at someone's else when they are embarrassed; 
*excluded a student from something you are doing; 
*encouraged others not to play with her/him;
*told someone "Let's not talk to (so and so...)"' 
*called someone an inappropriate name; 
*refused to sit next to "her" or "him"; 
*refused to "share" with a certain student; or 
*ever laughed at someone who is hurt
YOU are not showing that you CARE and this is Negative CHARACTER.

Share if you have ever felt like the boy whose books get knocked down in front of all those kids.  What happened?  As you are remembering this and if you find yourself in a situation when a student is disrespecting you, Mrs. Hott wants you to say to yourself, "I am unique and wonderfully made!"  Walk away.  Seek other students sharing Positive Character!  

Discuss which student 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 has a Positive character and what that student or adult has done.  

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

Finally.......  Did you know "Where in Morgan County?" Ms Sheima and Ms Angie are today????  If you do, just...
* get a scrap of paper, (or ask for help if you need it)
* write down your name, your teacher, and your guess, then, (again, ask for help if you need it)
* take your answer to the Positive Action mailbox, or globe, at your school, or comment, or email
for a chance to win a Morgan County Partership free t-shirt!

Students that show Positive CHARACTER
can change the world!
