GETTING UNSTUCK FROM THE NEGATIVE VIDEO
Take a few minutes and watch the video on Getting stuck in the negatives (and how to get unstuck) by Alison Ledgerwood.
Houston Challenge: We would like to challenge all of our teachers, students, and families to actively engage in retraining your mind to be positive. Search for ways that you can push back on the negative angst in the world with your positive words and actions. Take time to train each day by listing all the good things that happen even if they are small. Forced focus on the positive will help you to more easily flip the negatives to positives and change your outlook. A positive outlook will make your life more fulfilling.
Gift and Talented
In addition, if you are a remote learner and have a hot spot that you checked out through the school, our librarian Mrs. Pells will reach out to you to switch the hot spot out for newer one.
We would love the input of our teachers, staff, parents, students, and community members on how to improve our campus. With this in mind we have created a virtual Suggestion Box. The input can be completely anonymous or you can include your name and email address. You can find the link below. We will also be including this link in the Houston Highlights for our families.
