7 Habits at Home: Habit 2 - Creating a Mission Statement

We have the ability to visualize what we want to accomplish in the future. Once we visualize our goals, then we can take steps to accomplish our plans. Dr. Steven Covey would tell us to “Flex our proactive muscles to make things happen.”

First, though, we need to think about who we are and what is important to us as individuals. We are unique and have personal and moral guidelines that factor into us living happy and fulfilled lives.

· Creating a Personal Mission Statement allows individuals of all ages to think about “what you want to be and do.” It allows us to plan for success and reinforces and reaffirms who we are.

· Mission Statements help individuals to keep goals in focus and effectively move our ideas and visualizations into real world context.

· Mission statements make us the leaders of our own lives. We can create our own destiny and attain and secure the future envisioned.

· Adults and children can apply this to any assignment or project to be completed. We have to know and understand what the teacher or the boss is asking us to complete in clear terms. Once we know this, we can visualize the completed assignment or project and take the steps to complete it. An example for kids is the Catapult Project in seventh grade and the History of Montgomery project that eighth graders are assigned in the Fall Semester.

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for.”

Nurse Notes

Dear Lone Star Families,

We had LSE's annual vision/hearing screening "event" this past Tuesday for our in-person learners. We had the experienced help of Dr. Matt Synder's Montgomery Vision Source staff and the energetic help of Sam Houston State University nursing students. Due to Covid restrictions, sadly we could not have our parent volunteers. But our LSE 5th grade ambassadors rose to the occasion! The ambassadors ran all the moving parts like a well-oiled machine. They may have worked parent volunteers out of a job!

Mrs. Johnson or I will re-screen any student that did not pass the initial check in 3-4 weeks. If the student still is not seeing or hearing well, we will contact parents and recommend a professional eye or hearing exam.

We have scheduled vision/hearing screening for remote learners last names A-L for Tuesday Oct 13 (9 am - 3 pm) and last names M-Z on Tuesday Oct 20 (9am-3pm). Please call the clinic to schedule a time. Parents can also provide documentation of their child's vision/hearing check from their PCP .

We are continuing to watch the pandemic play out here at LSE. We are making it work with the set of 2's, a 3 and a 7 in this hand of Texas Hold 'em! LSE is doing quite well so far bluffing out Covid 19!
