P2 of the Week: Self-Control
This is the image for the news article titled P2 of the Week: Self-ControlUnder the guiding principles of our districtwide initiative, the Positivity Project, the #PositivityinAction mindset is a top priority. This week we will focus on the character strength of SELF-CONTROL.

People with the character strength of self control have the ability to control their emotions and behaviors. They think before they act.

Our elementary students participate in Santa's Shop, a place where students shop without their parents, for their family and friends. There's a lot to choose from and it can be dangerous to resist temptation to buy everything. That's where self control comes in.

Fourth grader Harper Miller from Violet Elementary enjoyed Santa Shop last week. She admitted, "Giving gifts makes everyone happy."  When she first walked into the "shop" she was surprised by the amount of present offerings. "It was tough not to buy everything."  Mom and Santa Shop Volunteer Katie Miller chimed, "She had to use self-control not to buy herself anything."  Mom cannot wait to see what Harper selected for under their tree.

Thank you to the parent volunteers who keep our tables fully stocked with presents, price each item, wrap them with care, and ensure a smooth check out process.

The following Santa Shop schedule will serve as a reminder for our elementary community:

Violet Elementary: December 4th-8th
Rodgers Elementary: December 11th-15th
Masonic Heights Elementary: December 18th-22nd

Bonus: We've spent hours finding the best Shorian gifts for family and friends and researching the best gear for your upcoming holiday parties.  All of the best holiday gift ideas for 2023 can be purchased at the Shorian Shop.

Located inside Lake Shore High School, the Shorian Shop features popular clothing merchandise, tasty treats, and Lake Shore trinkets. Our school store offers the chance to teach upperclassmen real-world skills like marketing and sales, accounting, and employability skills that will last a lifetime. 

Typically the Shorian Shop is open on weekdays, with the exception of Wednesdays, from 11:13-12:55pm inside the North Lab at LSHS, but tonight we will be open for the special hours of 5-7pm for holiday shoppers!

Thank you store manager Sydney Seabrooks and our student sales assistants in the Marketing and Sales class who provide this service to our school.  Please email Teacher Mrs. Radlick at [email protected] with any questions including additional availability options.

Making children aware that every one of them has all 24 character strengths, provides the foundation for genuine self-confidence grounded in self-awareness and develops an #OtherPeopleMatter mindset.
