From The Principal's Desk
"Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
It's Oscar season at PCS...the awards ceremonies start this Wednesday. Throughout my career, I have struggled with the idea of honoring students. I was taught that I should not reward students for behavior that I EXPECT from them, but I know as a parent the feeling of pride you have when you see your child earn an honor. The key word there is EARN. What do our students earn? What qualities do they possess that will help them excel when their education here is complete? I do not believe that "every child deserves a trophy" but I want us to acknowledge every student who deserves it.
On another note, what an exciting time for our district. It will be a relief when this bond election is over, but it will be such a game-changer if it passes (don't want to jinx it). Please see my post below about the 21st century classroom and start to picture what yours will look like. Then let's talk.
