    Our 6th Grade Affirmation
     
    I love who I am and I'm glad to be me.
    I'm glad to be alive, and I've decided to be the best me that I can be.
    Today is a good day.  Today is the day I choose to do my best and be my best.
    I'll have other good days too, but today is special and so am I.
    I am lovable and capable.
    I can and will accomplish my goals,
    because I can do all things!
