Each new year brings an opportunity to reflect on the past year and resolve to set new goals. Often lofty goals are quickly forgotten, so in the spirit of this new year, students in Mrs. Engel's reading classes had chosen just one word they would like to focus on during 2022. After researching powerful words, students selected a word that was meaningful to them. Then, students constructed a banner that outlined their selection and its significance. Because our thoughts often impact our lives, this one word will keep them focused on self-improvement all year long.
