During this 2013-2014 school year one of the things I want to encourage students to do is to "FOCUS THEIR MINDS". Whatever the mind is consumed by controls the mind. Therefore focus your energies on being successful with the understanding that "SUCCESS IS INTENTIONAL". That means if you intend on being successful your actions (intent) will demonstrate it. Too many of our students have the "I DON'T CARE ATTITUDE" and as a result find themselves behind in classes and behind in credits. It is highly important that students who are behind in classes take advantage of afterschool credit retrieval classes. Get themselves back on track and look to be successful. If the high school environment isn't for them they should look into the possibilty of doing 'Running Start'. That means earn 10 credits and take the ASSET or COMP test for Junior College or Vocational College. So many of our young people have to work nowadays, but they ought to still be encouraged to be involved in music, arts, and sports whenever possible. It helps them in more ways than you know.
Parents and students alike must understand that anything worth having, is worth working for. When a student has an attitude to work, it makes overcoming obstacles a WHOLE LOT easier.
I am willing to help any young person that needs it. I just need to know. (253)571-6628
