2 Words

Our athletic program has been using a character program called 2 Words for the last couple of years. It is really good stuff, so we're going to try and share it across the campus so everyone can benefit from the valuable lessons and share it in our community newsletter so it can be used at home as well.



The program is literally 2 words per week. This week our 2 words will be fail forward. There is an informational sheet below that can be used as a discussion point at home.


This week, be on the look out for:

1. An opportunity to redefine failure.

2. An opportunity to teach them how to learn from mistakes.

3. An opportunity to share stories about failure.

I hope that you enjoy using the 2 Words character program at home.
