Week of September 22-26th

Don't ever give up! This seems to be a theme I have come across more than once this week. We are beginning our fifth week of school and you and your students are falling nicely into the daily routine of school. This is where true character begins to shine within each of us. Do we have the perseverance to push through obstacles that are set before us? How do we handle failures or setbacks with ourselves or our students? Do we settle with less than the best? Do we grumble about the impossibilities we see? or do we accept these obstacles as a challenge and push forward towards the reward at the end? My hope is that we take on the challenge! If we reflect on our challenges and learn from them then we can become better because of them. The students are looking to us to model perseverance for them. I believe in each and every one of you and I can see the greatness that shines from your words and actions with our staff and students. You are doing a great job! Keep pushing forward and don't ever give up!

With Pride,
