The Cardinal Way
Sharing and Learning at Southport High School
Leading and Learning: CORE VALUES
Sense of Community
I can actively give my best for the Southport community.
I think one of the most important parts to focus on in this statement is “give my best.” Students get disappointed if they don’t get the best grade on the test or rank number two in their class. Instead of focusing on giving their best attitude and effort to each situation and being pleased with the outcomes, they only focus on being the best and struggle with the outcome if they are not. Sometimes, even when you give everything you have to a task, you still do not end up on top. We lose, we fall short, we miss the mark… we need to remember that even in misses or missed opportunities, lessons are learned that is exactly what we needed to be taught at the time. Our best sets us up for the next success and the successes after that. The best is an end goal that, once you reach, leaves you looking for something else to chase. Giving your best day in and day out can take you to places you never thought you would reach. What a place it would be if we all gave “my best” effort every day to the Southport community.
This week has finally felt a little more like normal school. Thank you to everyone for your efforts this week to welcome kids back to school!
Thank you to:
- Christina Ferguson for planning the NHS ceremony that will take place this Sunday.

Grateful Friday Challenge
Well hhhhheeeellllllllooooo Friday! How did you get here so fast? What’s that you say... something about being so busy that time is just flying by as our heads spin? Well, welcome anyway. Glad you are here!
Today let’s celebrate the number 4! We have had four great days this week as we have been celebrating having the entire alphabet back together! To keep the fun rolling for one more day- your #SHSGFC is to write 4 positive post-its to 4 different people. Stick a note on a classroom door during passing period, place one on a student’s desk, or pat one onto your colleague's shoulder as they pass you in the hallway-- place these wherever you would like to spread a little positivity.
Keep that Cardinal spirit up! With banners flying as we go! #FlyAsONE
