7 Habits at Home: Habit 2 - Begin with the End in Mind
Begin each day or task or project having a clear vision of your desired result. What do you want to accomplish? What will you do to reach your goal? Our time and our energy are extremely valuable resources. We can control how we use these resources to accomplish our end result or goal.
- Use your imagination to see in your mind what your completed goal looks like. You cannot see it with your eyes yet, but you can visualize it.
- Things are created twice using first the mental image and then following through to create the physical structure. Every builder follows blueprints for homes, stores, buildings, and stadiums.
- Imagine building a sand castle at the beach. What materials do you need? How will you build your sand castle? Will your sand castle look like the ones your family members create? How will it be the same? Planning is the key.
- Imagine that you decide to go fishing for the day. Beginning with the End in Mind will guarantee that you have the materials you need. Plan where you will fish and have your license already purchased. No guarantee on catching the fish though and that is why there are so many stories of the fish that got away!

Dear Lone Star Families,
On Tuesday, 10/6, Mrs. Johnson and I will screen vision and hearing for our Kinder, 1st, 3rd, and 5th graders. We will have the help of district staff and optometrist Dr. Matt Synder's staff. This screening will help us find our needles in the haystack of LSE students that may not be seeing and hearing well. This is a TX Department of State Health Services requirement and they have given Covid guidelines that we will be using. Any student that does not pass the initial screening will be re-screened in 2-3 weeks. If the student still is not seeing or hearing well, we will contact parents and recommend a visit to an eye doctor or PCP for vision or hearing testing. Mrs. Johnson or I will be contacting LSE remote learner parents in the next few weeks to schedule a vision/hearing screening here at LSE OR the parent can provide documentation of screening results from their doctor. We are required by TX DSHS to keep these records. Each school district in Texas must submit a report annually with number of students wearing glasses/referred to eye doctor and number of students referred for hearing difficulties and number requiring treatment.
We are looking forward to reaching the 1st 9 weeks milestone! Students can celebrate a 4-day Columbus Day week-end NEXT weekend and 3 day for staff to catch our breaths and set sail for another 9 weeks beginning Oct. 13th!
