 CPHS Talking Points (Commitment, Pride, Honor, Success)



On Wednesday our CPHS lesson was an icebreaker to help students listen to each other and share a little more about themselves.  In this icebreaker students were divided into groups and asked to share two facts about themselves and one piece of fiction about themselves.  Then their group tried to determine what was  fact and what was fiction.  Listening to each other was key.


Cavalier Challenge:

In the last couple of lessons you have gotten to know a little more about the people in our class.  These lessons have been about making positive connections.  As a group you are creating an environment that is positive and open for sharing.  This was a fun way to practice respecting those who are talking simply by listening.  By taking time to listen to each other we are well on our way to a culture of acceptance.  Your challenge this week is to promote a positive atmosphere around you simply by listening more to the people in your life.



Just a reminder all information is also on our website:
