The fifth grade class used FaceTime to talk with Christian Griffith from the History Channel's show The Selection. Christian was one of four who finished the grueling military, Navy Seal-style training event. The show began with 25 people and after 11 days, only four remained. We've worked on our Habits of Mind all year and this was a special way to tie everything we've discussed together. Christian spoke about putting others first and how everything is temporary, except quitting. He said he gets through hard times by remembering to put one foot in front of the other and eventually you will make it. His message was very inspirational and helpful to the students in connecting what we score ourselves on paper for to real life.
