Congratulations if you are growing through concrete!
You have probably been walking down a sidewalk, in a parking lot or on the street when you see something green growing up through the concrete.
Every time I see this phenomenon, I think 'wow' - if that tiny seed is able to sprout and push its way toward the light and through the concrete, what is stopping me from pushing through my own 'concrete barriers'?
I usually determine my concrete barriers are self-imposed and sneak into existence during moments of self-doubt, frustration and/or the busyness of my work and personal lives.
What I strive to do is remind myself that I too can thrive in any circumstance put before me and I urge you to do the same.
Ten Seconds of Fame as the Drum Major!
Thanks to Bryton Cole, the BHS Band allowed me to 'lead' one of the songs/chants during the 4th quarter at Mt. Vernon. It was an honor, but I was so nervous I would get off beat!!
Fannin Walk 4 Hope
Several staff members represented Bonham ISD in the Walk 4 Hope this past Saturday. It was a great morning to visit with staff, get a few miles of exercise in and donate to a worthy cause of decreasing suicide and increasing mental health resources in Fannin County.
BHS marching band @ Aubrey
Last Saturday, the BHS Marching Band traveled to Aubrey High School to compete their show - Agent 54.
I thought their performance was flawless - they looked in unison and sharp and sounded amazing.
LHR Volleyball @ home vs. Pottsboro
Lady Indian volleyball teams faced Pottsboro on Monday night. The girls are making progress and learning the nuances of the rotation and working together to call the ball.
Custodian Appreciation Day - Monday, October 3rd
We honored Sonseea Baker on Monday - the Central Office staff loves that she comes to our building early each morning and gets it prepped for the day.
In addition to keeping it clean, Sonseea writes notes or quotes on the bathroom mirror each and every day! It took us a little while to figure out who our mystery encourager was.....so we showered her with quotes on Monday!
