He holds the record for being the winningest coach in NFL history. He was even the coach for the Baltimore Colts and led them to the 1968 NFL Championship.

Mrs. Gibson: Today we are wearing green in support of Mental Health Matters Awareness Week, which is May 3rd - 9th in Maryland. Mental health refers to a person’s overall behavioral, social, emotional and psychological well-being. Mental health impacts how we think, feel, and act, including how a child feels about himself/herself, relates to other children and adults, and handles change, stress and other life situations. One in five children experience a mental, emotional or behavioral health problem before age 18. These problems affect children of all demographic groups, regardless of education, income, race or culture. Hopefully, this week you have been learning things to help yourself and others feel better when you are sad, worried, angry, or scared. To learn more about the signs and symptoms of mental health problems contact your school counselor, your pediatrician, or go to

Ms. Rosencrans: Let’s shake it up with some jokes. Why did the scarecrow win an award?....He was outstanding in his field. What do lawyers wear to court?....a lawsuit Did you guess either one of them correctly?

Meah: (Words of Wisdom) Good morning, Dundalk Middle School. This is (name of narrator) with a few words of wisdom. William Blake, an English poet, painter, and master engraver, has engraved these words into the character of many: As a man is, so he sees. He’s talking about perception – how a person views the world. The word perception comes from the Latin percipere, which means to grab hold of. So the question of the day is: How do you grab hold of life? Do you hold the negative or the positive? Do you see the glass as half full or half empty? Today, watch those negative thoughts. Grab hold of the positive in each situation and see how your perception can empower you.  With something to think about, this is (name of narrator). Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.

Meah: We hope we are bringing a smile to your face. If not try this sign that the Pittsburgh Magazine published recently. See you again on Tuesday.
