Have you heard of something called "transfat"? It's a kind of unhealthy fat that is found in many processed foods like doughnuts, cookies, and crackers and in some brands of margarine. Transfats help the product last longer on the shelf but they can result in a shorter life for us!

Conflict Resolution:
One way you can handle conflict is by using "I" messages; When you are trying to work out a problem with someone try telling them how you feel by saying:
* I feel mad (feeling)
* when I'm ignored at lunch (behavior)
* because it makes me feel like we're not friends. (effect behavior has on you)
* If we are going to be friends, I need for you to acknowledge me at all times. (what you need the other person to do)

At JMS I will ....
Discipline &
to show my Jaguar PRIDE!
