YMCA and the P16 Project

Making a difference, however small it may be, could be the only difference a child needs to succeed. In all that you do today please remember that children are the reason. Our kids have talents beyond our wildest dreams…help a child realize their talents.


Live YOUR Life

When we are living active, often we must compete against others to gain experience. Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. Losing in a game or activity is not the same as losing in life. Not coming out on top in that particular event does not mean that you did not get better (bigger, stronger, faster, and smarter). That real challenge or competition is against yourself. Do you have it in you to compete and win against yourself? Say YES! Someone beats you in a race for example…so what, the next time you race, your goal is to do better than YOU did last time, not beat someone else. Maybe I could only do one push up and my best friend did ten. It is not about your best friend, it is about you. Your goal is not to do ten push ups next time, your goal is to do two push ups, maybe three or four the next time. If you can accomplish this you are making yourself a champion, a success, a winner, a fighter, you are making yourself better now than you have ever been. This is our goal!

Recess Rules and Games

Playing and working together outside is our goal this week. We will be going over the main recess games. They will include tether ball, foursquare, hopscotch, and bump basketball. The most important thing that Wildcat Country needs to understand is that we can only be successful when we are all playing by the same rules and respecting ourselves and others!
