Cub Character Assembly
Congratulations to our students who qualified to go to our March Cub Character Event. We had Joe Odhiambo, an incredible Basketball Trick Star who holds 5 Guinness World Records! He had a great, positive message about believing in yourself. Joe said we all have the tools to do whatever we want but we have to 1. Believe 2. Persist and Practice 3. Have patience (because becoming the best takes time) 3. Do the right thing in the right place at the right time 4. Work hard and 5. Be responsible.
