The 2nd installment of a look back at blogs published during the 2012-13 school year.
February 11, 2013 Think Before You Hit ENTER
Finally, It's really no secret that I believe we should try to make a positive difference in the lives of those around us every day. I think that should not only go for the words we say to people but also to the things we type and post on social media sites.
"The best index to a person's character is how he treats people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people who can't fight back."
-Abigail Van Buren (Dear Abby)
February 18 The Moments
One of the moments I'll remember from this past basketball season is shown below:
You bet, I want to win, but I firmly believe that what we do in athletics and activities must be an extension of the classroom. Even though I've been here for less than a year I have no doubt that we have students who would display great sportsmanship, compassion, and would do the right thing when given the opportunity. I again, challenge our coaches/sponsors/directors/students/parents to not miss an opportunity when it's presented to you.
We'll keep looking for ways to show Wildcat Pride and we'll do it with Class.
February 25 More On The Moments
Here's my challenge to you:
If you participate in athletics and activities as a student think about the journey you go on through a season. You may have won championships or even endured tough seasons without a lot of victories, but think about the experiences you had with your teammates, the laughs, the crazy moments that are etched in your mind that maybe only those that were there know about or appreciate. You may even think of some sad moments that are important to you because of a special bond with someone on your team or in your group. Those memories happened on the journey and help to define who you become.
Coaches and Sponsors, think about some of the journeys you've been on with different teams or groups. Think of those success stories that you've experienced and the memories that you've been able to help create and you enjoy even to this day.
