    January's Theme of the Month was Self Discipline
    Self Discipline means "self control".  You don't lose control of yourself when you feel hurt or angry, but decide how you are going to talk and what you are going to do.  With self-discipline, you take charge of yourself.
    Congratulations to the students below who consistantly display Self Discipline.
