7 Mindsets-Passion First!
Passion First tells us that we are all unique and that our lives should be focused on finding our unique genius and sharing it with the world. Everyone has things he or she does well. When you do what you’re good at, you perform better and get better results, which benefit both you and those around you. Playing to your strengths is critical, so that you spend your time doing what you’re best at and create the most value. It’s also important to recognize that your strengths are much more than things you do well (i.e. math, sports, music); they also include situations in which you thrive, and people with whom you are at your best. You must understand all of these strengths to enhance your life.

Blessings in a Backpack
We are collecting canned soups for families in need whose children receive food each week in a backpack through the Blessings in a Backpack Program. This program was started and is managed by students at Lambert High School who wanted to make a difference in the lives of younger students in Forsyth County Schools. Thank you for your support of this valuable program!
