Wilson Elementary Character Kids (Self-Discipline)

Wilson students are learning about self-discipline during the month of March. We are learning that self-discipline is defined as the ability to control one's own actions. We're also learning a quote from Coach Lou Holtz, who said, "Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period."

First and second grade students have chosen representatives from their classrooms who show good self-discipline in their daily routines. During the first two weeks of March, the following students were chosen:

First Grade Self-Discipline Students (3-7-2014) --
Payton Jones, Lilian Wingate, Hayden Stiles, Jesse Jackson, Aivah Barnes, Armando Vargas, and Alex Robertson

Second Grade Self-Discipline Students (3-7-2014) --
Angel Yang, Bre Collins, Korbin Kerr, Andi Risley, Cameron Hixon, and Hunter Appel

First Grade Self-Discipline Students (3-14-2014) --

Members of the Collinsville Patchworkers met at the Library March 11, to share Show and Tell items, and hear a program provided by Vickie Ewing about the history of Civil War quilts, and the hidden meanings created in their patterns - which aided those escaping to the North via the Underground Railroad. Ewing also shared directions to make fabric dish lifters for the microwave, and how to turn a terry cloth towel into fashionable color-coordinated bath mat.

Members also went over details for the Spring Retreat at Tulakogee Conference Center, and it was announced that the next meeting for the Patchworkers will be April 8, 6:30 PM at the Library - guests are always welcome!
