Favorite thing about GP: I like to play volleyball
You should not follow people that lead you the wrong way. You should be a leader instead of a follower. You should make your own decisions. You should be yourself. You should be nice to others.
-De’Mya, 3rd Grade
To lead myself, I stay positive and keep myself full of perseverance. You can see my head up and I never back down. I am always confident with everything. I don’t put myself in any bad situations. That is how I lead myself.
-Zelmarria, 5th Grade
To lead myself, I reach the goals I set and improve on things I’m not that good at. For example, I reached my goal to play a sport, which was volleyball. I was not that good at first but I got there. When you reach a goal and improve on things you have achieved something very important. That’s what I do to lead myself.
