Responsibility

Showing you can be trusted with what is expected of you. It has been said responsibility finds a way, irresponsibility makes excuses. Do you find a way or make an excuse when you are given a responsibility. This month your challenge is  to show you can be trusted with what is expected of you. 

Color of the Month- Tan

The color Tan

 The color tan gives a sense of warmth,security, stability, and dependability. These feelings are the same feelings we have when people around us can be trusted to do what they say they will do. Tan is a color for blending often used for camouflage. A color associated with the military, we see those who show responsibility.  Members of the military can be trusted to do what is expected of them.

 

Animal of the Month- German Shepherd

German Shepherd

The German Shepherd dog is a herding breed known for courage, loyalty, and guarding instincts.  This dog can be seen protecting our police, guide dogs for the blind, and even protecting those who travel in our airports. They show a lot of responsibility.
