April 2019 Newsletter
A Note from Mr. Hershey
We hope you all had a very relaxing and safe spring break. I know how hectic life can seem right now with everything wrapping up at the end of the school year and am hopeful that you were able to get away and relax with your children and family.
During the month of April, I tend to focus on the 7 Mindsets"The Time is Now." I am so thankful to be part of this learning community with our students, staff, and community. It is truly such a gift to be serving in my role and am thankful for the opportunity each and every day. I also think that it's natural to think about this being something that we do towards the end of a specific time frame similar to the motto "Finish Strong" but in reality, we want to encourage our students to live this out all the time...to embrace every moment, to be vulnerable, make mistakes and learn from them, and to act on purpose with everything that they do.
Although the GA Milestones are just around the corner, we certainly don't want to teach our students to only do their very best when the test comes around, we want them to do their best throughout the year and live "The Time is Now" mentality all the time so that they are prepared and successful for whatever challenges are in their path as they move forward throughout life. Thank you for your support with this as this is certainly a life skill that we want to develop in all of our students.
As always, we are here to partner with you to support your child. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to reach out for support.
With much gratitude,
The 7 Mindsets Corner
Mindset of the Month
The Time is Now mindset teaches us the importance of harnessing the power of the moment and taking purposeful action. The simple fact is that all of our power to act and make an impact exists in this moment. We cannot change the past and the future hasn’t happened, so we must recognize that our only path to happiness, fulfillment and meaning is to take purposeful action in the present toward creating the lives of our dreams.
Make sure to ask your student about what "The Time is Now" means. For more information, please click here. You will find great resources on this link that will support you as a parent.
