Wisdom: Finding out what you should do and doing it (K-12)

Our value this month is wisdom. Wisdom is finding out what to do and doing it. You’ll be seeing and hearing about wisdom this month in lots of different ways. We want to hear from you! What do you think about wisdom—how can being wise as a young person change your future? You can use the hashtag #ValueWisdom

Since this is the beginning of the school year, it’s always best to set some goals for the year! Some of us know exactly what we want to do as we get older and some of us are still trying to figure it out. If Wisdom is finding out what to do and doing it, then make a list of 5 people in your life that you admire then ask them questions about the things they did as they grew up that made a difference in their life.
