As we head back to 2nd semester, I enter with a grateful heart. I'm excited to see our students, excited to hear about their holiday break, and ready to get back to a normal schedule.
Second semester is always a bit more challenging than the first. The newness has worn off, there's no Christmas to look forward to, and testing looms on the horizon. It's a great time to get back to those beginning of the year routines that seem to fall to the wayside sometime around late September. Reminding your child to eat a good breakfast, use his/her planner every day, keep up with homework, make time for hobbies, and get to bed on time every night can give your child an edge. If you're like me, it's always hard to get back into a good rhythm after a long break - which makes it even more important to do.
The great thing about second semester is that you're starting with a clean slate. You can officially put first semester behind you, and get ready to start fresh! I encourage you to speak these words of encouragement to your child as he/she returns to school on Tuesday. The first week back will inevitably be rough, but using the power of our words can make all the difference.
I look forward to the smiling faces climbing out of the car on Tuesday morning! Enjoy the few last days of your Christmas vacation and take time Monday morning to pray for your child as he/she heads back to school that day.
