November - Attitude of Gratitude

An attitude of gratitude means creating a conscious mindset and habit to be thankful, and express appreciation for every aspect of your life, both big and small. When you have a gratitude mindset you feel more confident, positive, optimistic, happy and joyful about the things you have, and the people that matter most.

1 Picture, No Explanation
This past week 7-12 students and staff were asked to share a picture of one thing they are grateful for. The pictures were used to create a schoolwide collage for a gratitude bulletin board. Thank you to all 7-12 students and staff who shared a picture of something they are grateful for. As you walk out the doors by the student parking lot, please check out the bulletin board. Our students and staff have many things in Columbus Grove they are grateful for and appreciate. Schoolwide we had over 250 pictures submitted!

The guidance office kept track of each grade level's percentage of participation for pictures submitted. The winners of the junior high competition were the 8th graders with 83% participation.

The junior class had the highest percentage of participation with 77%, followed by the sophomores, seniors, and freshmen. To the left - Grades 9-12 class presidents pose for a picture after the spirit stick was presented to the junior class president. (L to R): Ella Dotson (9th Grade-39%), Reed Schumacher (12th Grade-45%), Kate Dipnarine (10th Grade-60%) and Gwen Langhals (11th Grade-77%).

Football Throw Contest

The Guidance Department is focusing on “Attitude of Gratitude” for the month of November. We are very thankful for the administration, staff and students here at CG. We decided to have a little fun with our principals, Mr. Calvelage who is an Ohio State fan and Mr. Best who is a Michigan fan. Mr. Best and Mr. Calvelage had a football throwing competition during lunch on Thursday, Nov. 18th to decide who will be the champion and who will have to wear the opposing teams shirt with pride! Mr. Best walked away with the Football Throwing Champion Title. Mr. Calvelage was a good sport and wore a Michigan shirt on Friday! All staff and students K-6 also wore their favorite OSU/Michigan attire Friday and decorated a paper football to display in the cafeteria to get ready for the Big Game over the holiday weekend. Watch the video here!
