One Word
At Andrew, our students and staff choose "One Word" to guide them throughout the year. The word that is chosen is something that is meaningful to each individual person. It could be something that they really want to work on getting better at or a word that will guide the choices that they make throughout the year. This years 4th grade class chose words such as: Grateful, Responsible, Kind, Inspire and Energetic. The students will work to encourage each other to make these words come alive in their classroom by modeling what they mean to other students, staff and in the community. Each student chooses a word at Andrew and they are posted in their individual classrooms. 
Our "One Word" inspiration comes from author, Jon Gordon and his "One Word That will Change Your Life." Please watch the video below to learn more.
