Together We Are Better

You are too awesome to be anything less than your best!

I know what you’re thinking. “One more full week”. You know what? The kids, and their families, are thinking the same thing. We are given only so many days with the kids so why not make these next five school days the best they can be? I mentioned to a few students in conversation that it takes the same amount of energy to be nice as it does to be mean. I would also say it takes the same amount of energy to be awesome with the kids as it does to be less than awesome. How is that possible? If you are awesome, and you all are awesome, the kids will be awesome, too. It's contagious- and it creates more awesomeness. If you are less than awesome, the time you spend because the kids are less than awesome is the same. Make sense? Be awesome today, and next week, and the days to come. Let's make it the best week of the year!

*Special thanks to my friend Jay Posick for sharing this important message.
