This week's K Smith Habit is THINK-Use Evidence to Support Claims. We make claims all the time about things that we read, opinions we might have, or judgements we make.

This can take the form of organizing people, challenging the status quo, leading change, fundraising, making something beautiful, or creating awareness..just to name a few.

Have you ever heard someone say, "I can't do it," when faced with a challenging task? It happens all the time and reflects a fixed mindset: the idea that we are either good at something or we aren't. We have all felt this way before and yes, there may be some things we aren't able to do right now, but what if we simply added, "yet" to the previous statement-"I can't do it, YET."

Principal's message Imagine a small fire. I'm sure you've gone camping and sat by a cozy fire under the stars. Putting out that fire is relatively easy. Add a little water. Maybe toss on some dirt, but overall, after some small effort, the fire is out. However,...

Quietness gives one strength. When we have a "place" of solace, safety, and quiet, then creativity, imagination, and self-expression emerge naturally. One way we to feel safe is when we have a quiet, safe place physically.

People make claims all the time-sometimes when expressing an opinion such as their favorite sport, trying to explain their reasoning in how they solved a math problem, or even in determining what really happened to all the dinosaurs. Then question then becomes "How do you know?" or "What makes you say that?"
