Keeping you Informed
We are closing out October and are in the midst of the longest run of the school year without any break. The one problem with starting school in August is it makes this run one week longer. It is easy during these long runs to focus on the negative actions of students but I challenge you this week and coming weeks to change your mindset and make sure to focus on the positive things that students are doing in your classes. I believe life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react which is our attitude and in our control. Be positive with each other and the students and see if your week changes for the better. 10 days until we have our first holiday! Stay strong my friends!
