You have all seen the signs, “Keep Calm and Carry On”. Right?
My motto for this school year is “KEEP CALM AND…” I think for teachers and students alike the motto is a great one. A shot of calmness during the always hectic days of school is always a pleasure.
I have used this sentiment on a number of bulletin boards throughout my science lab and hallway (By the way, our school’s mascot is the panther, hence the panther paws with student names.).
I was also lucky to find these great posters from a shop on etsy, Poster Pop. I love these. I hung one at each entrance of my classroom.
Did you know?
“It was 1939 and Britain was on the brink of war. In anticipation of this, the British Government’s Ministry of Information had commissioned a series of propaganda posters with messages from King George VI to reassure the British that their country would be defended at all costs.
The posters were to be displayed all over the country once war was declared. Using only the crown of King George VI, this poster simply read “Keep Calm and Carry On”; however, it never made it onto the walls of Britain and was never officially issued.
Many years later, a crumpled copy of the poster was discovered by chance amongst a pile of dusty old books. The message is as relevant today as it was then.”
I am looking forward to “keeping calm” this year.
KEEP CALM, y’all!
