The Positivity Project: Perseverance
For the next two weeks, the kids will be studying perseverance.
You complete what you start despite obstacles. You never give up.
WHY IT MATTERS
Perseverance is a uniquely human characteristic that
identifies an individual’s ability to spend long periods of
time devoted to a single goal or set of goals. Those who
persevere are able to set goals for themselves and then
take active, calculated steps toward those goals. People
demonstrating high levels of perseverance are able to
handle significant, sometimes repeated, setbacks in pursuit

Share your thoughts on Wake County Public School's next Superintendent!
As part of the search process for a new WCPSS Superintendent, the chair of the Wake County Board of Education has requested that paper copies of a community survey be available at the front desk of each school for staff and parents. To meet this request, the office has printed several copies of the English and Spanish versions of the surveys and placed them in the front office.
These are identical to the surveys found at wcpss.net/superintendent-search . You are welcome to take the online survey instead of the paper one.
