To me, GROW means…
Describes Me: Loving
Favorite thing about GP: The Flowers
Grow mean to have confidence if yourself and be who you are. Don’t let others judge you by the way you look and don’t judge others yourself. I feel that ever since I learned what grow means I have become a better individual.
Grow means to me to be on our best behavior. Grow means to me to have faith in yourself. Grow means to me to have a big friendship. Grow means to me to be confident about yourself.
Grow means caring about others and how they feel. Grow mean not being selfish. Grow mean not only caring about yourself. Grow means not to be rude. Grow means not to be silly with your food at the table. Grow means don’t brag.
Grow means to show others what is right and wrong. Grow is a meaning that show your personality of what you really are and as you go to class. You start to get that you are growing.
