7 Mindsets

This month we will focus on the mindset Passion First. This mindset teaches us that we are each uniquely different. Passion First reminds us to Focus on Strengths and find what we love. Passion first teaches us to Explore our Interests and do more of what we love on a regular basis. This mindset also reminds us to Make a Stand and do what is important to ourselves and our values. Lastly, this mindset reminds us to Be Authentic and allow our dreams and passions to start from within. Ask yourself: What do I love so much that I could do it every day?

A Note From Mrs. Smith

I hope you all enjoyed a little down time and reconnected with your family during the amazing break. Now we are off to make 2016 RIDICULOUSLY amazing! It starts simply by choosing to make each day special in some way. Ask your kids what they think makes the day special – their answers may surprise you!!!!! I wish we all saw the world with the same wonder. ~Mrs. Smith~
