New “Character Education” has begun at J.W. Maxwell. We are learning a new word every week to help students learn how to show good character. Our first word was Gratitude. The quality of feeling grateful or thankful. This week’s words are SELF CONTROL: Restraint or control of one’s emotions or behavior.
In Loving Memory and Gratitude for Penny Cunningham.
In November, one of our teachers, Ms. Cunningham passed away. We are deeply saddened by this loss. It is with very heavy hearts that we share this information with you. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ms. Cunningham’s family and friends. Ms. Cunningham was a beloved teacher at our school for five years. She endeared herself to J.W. Maxwell through her hard work and dedication to our students. Ms. Cunningham spent countless hours planning the perfect lesson to teach her students, and she never hesitated to assist students or staff in any way possible. She will be deeply missed. Her love of learning and desire to instill that in her students is a gift that she has left with us.
