Students and staff recently attended a convocation from Jim “Basketball” Jones entitled, “Three Pointers for Life.” While Jim put on a great show with some amazing basketball skills, there was a deeper message he was able to deliver. Jim worked alongside the students and staff to explore the values of making good choices, respecting others, being responsible, and being safe. Students were encouraged to “own their effort.” This means they can have pride in their school and themselves, encourage others, and think before they act. Students and staff walked away with the ABCs of his presentation: Apply Kindness, Be Yourself, and Challenge Yourself. The students and staff had a great time singing, dancing, participating in some amazing basketball tricks, and most importantly, learning some great lifeskills along the way.
A special shout-out to Nicholas Latimer, Haylie Shoemaker, and Kenzie Jacobs for doing an awesome job on their shutterbooks!
