The Triton Tribune - Parent Edition
Be Kind ~ Be Awesome ~ Make The Right Choices
Volume 2 ~ Issue 27~ February 22, 2021
Wonderful Triton Students and Parents,
"Protect your enthusiasm from the negativity of others." H. Jackson Brown Jr.
As we end February, I want to encourage you to continue to keep your enthusiasm up especially with progress reports being completed this week. Some of you may get discouraged that your grades are not where they should be; however, I want you to remember the power of YET. One of the ways in which you can continue to be enthusiastic instead of being down is knowing that the progress report is NOT the final grade YET. It is a checkpoint for you so that you can adjust what you need to do: to either maintain your grades if they are excellent or decide how to correct your path so that your grades starts to move in a positive direction. The most influential negative thought does not come from others; instead, it comes from deep within our minds where no one can hear or see it. This means that YOU and I have sole control of deciding how that thought will affect our enthusiasm in learning.
This also means you need to advocate for yourself, which means talking to the most influential person who can help you; that is your teachers. I know that for many of you talking to teachers outside of the class period seems hard to do but it is one of the most important skills that you need to learn so that you can get answers for success directly from them.
Finally, you will need to take advantage of every available academic support that ELM has to offer. If you need help in math, we have virtual math tutoring every day. If you need help in Science, we will offer virtual science tutoring starting March 1. We are also looking to start a virtual Spanish tutoring at the same time.
I know that YOU CAN DO THIS!
