Quote of the Week

Do not follow the path. Go where there is no path to begin the trail.

---Ashanti proverb

It takes courage, strength and conviction to go against the grain. But if someone hadn't done it, we wouldn't have wheat bread, chocolate chip ice cream or radios in our cars. It is often difficult to get other people to follow your train of thought. Stop trying. It's your train. You are the engineer and the conductor. We usually want and need help, support and comfort when we are doing something new. If we do not get it, so what! Does it mean we should stop what we are doing? Absolutely not! The path to success is paved with road signs, warning symbols and obstructions. But when you start a new trail equipped with courage, strength and conviction, the only thing that can stop you is you.

Look who was "TAGGED"

Congratulations Ms. Wilson. I’m selecting you as the “I make a Difference” person for the week of 10/17. I wouldn’t be where I am today as an educator, if it weren’t for your amazing mentorship.

I’m selecting you because of your passion and commitment to CPES:

  • You build long, meaningful relationships with students, that go beyond the classroom

  • You go above and beyond to help all students and staff members

  • Your positive attitude and work ethic make you an outstanding role model to all those that cross your path

    Thank you for all that you do every day here at CPES; you truly make a difference!
