This year's Student Council theme is all about character embedded in the P.I.R.A.T.E.S. acronym.  P stands for Perseverance and is this month's character focus.  7th and 8th grade students in Mr. Ziegler's SUCCESS class met with high school student mentors to have discussions and do activities (like the "Group Knot").  Students learned what perseverance is, and discussed perseverance in real life as it applies to school, sports, and relationships.  They learned in order to persevere, we can't blame, shame, freak out, deny, or quit, but instead, say "NEXT!"  Next lesson, next try, next opportunity!  Arrrgh!!
