THE WORD OF THE WEEK IS STAGNANT.  Synonyms for stagnant include:  dormant, stale, static, inert, lifeless, and sluggish.

SOFT SKILL OF THE WEEK IS TIME MANAGEMENT.  Time management is the art of simply being on time, which includes delivering things before deadlines as well as being on time for work and meetings.  This is achieved by being organized and sticking to a schedule that you have created.  You may not be able to create more time in your day, but applying time management skills can help you make the most of the time you do have!

Remember the Pirate Code.  Be Respectful.  Be Responsible.  Be Involved.

THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HELPED IN ORGANIZING AND PARTICIPATING IN THE PEYTON PALS' GAME.  Peyton Pals has helped children and families that face the challenges of Fox G1 and bring awareness to this rare disorder.  FOXG1 is a severe neurological condition characterized by seizures, small head size, inability to control body movements, and lack of speech.  While the spectrum of abilities is broad depending on the exact genetic mutation, many children and few adults cannot walk or talk.  Since the condition is rare there is lack of funding and support for these children and families.  So thank you for supporting and bringing awareness to the cause.  Order forms and t-shirts will be in the STUCO Store or see Ms. Lopez.

SUPPORT PATTONVILLE ROBOTICS:  Join us at Chipotle (3533 McKelvey Road in Bridgeton) this evening between 5:00-9:00pm.  Pick up a flyer in the Front Office, or show it on your smartphone, or tell the cashier you're supporting the Pattonville Robotics Fundraising Cause… 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the Pattonville Robotics.
