From The Principal Tony White.......
I think those are enough questions to ponder for right now. I think the focus we should have as parents and adults in our Eagles' lives who care about them very much should be on: what can we control? We all have hopes, dreams, and goals for 2022, and there will be circumstances beyond our control that may alter the course. However, in focusing on the things we can control, we stand a better chance of a positive outcome.
As we coach our Eagles on their approach to 2022, let's not have them think about the things outside of their control as it leads to a mentality of being a passenger in life - things happen TO me. Let's have them realize the moments they are in the driver's seat and can actually influence these positive outcomes and results. And when they win, let's celebrate the heck out of them. Praise our Eagles for their efforts, positivity, and then the results. In praising the efforts and positivity, our Eagles will recognize that those are going to have even more of an impact in their lives than the "win." Effort and a positive attitude actually ARE the win.
Happy New Year, Norton Creek! I hope your 2022 is off to a wonderful start and that you enjoy this weekend with your favorite people! Be well!

JANUARY PTO MEETING
Come zoom with us for our first PTO meeting of the new year next Tuesday January 11th at 7PM. Due to the rise in COVID cases, we will be going back to virtual meetings until we feel it’s safe to be back in person. Here is the link to the meeting! Look out for the updated agenda on TWAC next Sunday. Help us brainstorm on how we can make this crazy time fun for the students and teachers!
We are still looking for some parent helpers to volunteer their time to get into the classroom with the kiddos and talk about a work of art followed by a fun activity. The monthly signups are now listed on Membership Toolkit! If you missed the informational meeting, please send an email to Kelly Charlson listed above.
Did your child celebrate a birthday over break? Don’t forget to have them stop by the LRC to pick up their birthday book and fun bookmark!
