January #AMDSBkidschat: Responsibility

Join us as we discuss #Responsibility during our next #AMDSBkidschat on January 26th from 10AM-11AM.  It’s is a great place for students to connect with their peers, creatively share ideas, improve literacy skills by communicating and collaborating with others, and develop citizenship and character. Everything you need to get started can be found here! Watch the video, answer the questions, and join us to share your ideas to learn with other K-12 students throughout #AMDSBLearns!

“Your success is your responsibility.  Take the initiative, do the work, and persist until the end.”
