Sept 18 MS/HS Announcements

Daily Announcements MPCG

Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Encouraging thought of the day: 

William Blake, English poet, painter, and master engraver, has engraved these words into the character of many: As a man is, so he sees. 

He is talking about perceptions. How a person views the world. The word comes from the Latin percipete, which means to grab hold of. So the question of the day is: How do you grab hold of life? Do you hold the negative or the positive? Do you see the glass half full or half empty?

On the Lunch Menu today: 

Chicken 'n' Biscuits

Glazed Carrots

Oreo Dessert
