5ive For Friday

1. Hosp Highlighted... Twice! Next week Hosp is being highlighted twice. Once at the upcoming school board meeting for how we celebrate our school diversity. Mrs. Bryant, Mrs. Kumar and Mrs. Tobey will be with me as we present to the FISD School Board. Then yours truly is presenting with the help of Kayla Hicks video skills on our 5ive For Friday as a different approach to staff communication. Yes, our little staff podcasts are drawing a following!

4. So Good They Can't Ignore You by Cal Newport is the book I am currently reading and it is great and a must read for all future high school and college graduates. Here is a summary:

"Matching your job to a preexisting passion does NOT matter, he reveals. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. With a title taken from the comedian Steve Martin, who once said his advice for aspiring entertainers was to "be so good they can't ignore you".

5. Shout Out: Bethany Doan! We are so excited to have Mrs. Doan back on campus! We have also included a sweet picture of Hudson for all of us to awwww over.

Also big shout out to Jennifer Dennis for cleaning the refrigerator. Talk about going way above and way beyond. All I can tell you was Q-Tips were involved and those refrigerators are immaculate. Thank you Jennifer !

Finally, congratulations to Paige Youngblood on her engagement!
