Super Vision 20/20!
LVHS Weekly Bulletin 10/07/2019
Dear LVHS Family,
An important part of our campus culture is mentorship. We mentor our students and each other to make our campus a better place. This year, we will take time to mentor students that struggle to meet our academic expectations. It is inspiring how our staff works so diligently to make sure students succeed. Jessica Lahey states: "Strong, positive relationships with at-risk youth can give them much-needed feelings of competence." Lahey's words remind us of the power of mentors. Mentors serve to provide scaffolds and support students need to be successful. Nonetheless, the most important thing mentors do is provide hope. When students see tasks or expectations as impossible, mentors help them realize that what truly is possible, and that process creates hopefulness. The process to select and meet with your mentees will be shared this week. Please take time to connect, reassure, and provide for hope to our struggling students.
Thank you for all you do to make LVHS a great place for students!
La Vernia High School
"Nine out of ten teachers will not pull the fire alarm because they don't know where it is or they think they're not allowed to use it. We've been trained to believe we should never pull a fire alarm, even as a student" (Texas School Safety Center, 2018).
Hard to believe, but that's a very common response in schools across the country!
Teachers are the front line of defense, on most campuses, there are anywhere from 80-90 staff members vs. 3 administration. If you see or hear something, do something. Minutes count in emergencies.
BE EMPOWERED to do what is right for kids and your campus.
Thank you and as always stay #SAFEbears.
