We had a fairly good week at the school this week. As we approach the 8th week of school, it seems that we are starting to get into a groove and the students are starting to understand what we are trying to do. They have been great so far and I am proud to see them continue to grow and learn in this environment.
I was most impressed with the Jr Girls softball team earlier in the week. I had not seen them play all season, but one day, one of the girls asked me to come to the game because she thought they would win the championship. I asked her “how do you know that?” She replied “well, we have won a lot of games so far and I think we will win again.”
That was enough for me, I went to the game and didn’t know there were two games. But I stuck it out and guess what happened? They won the Hall County championship. They played with guts, passion, and grace. I am glad I had a chance to see them win.
We also announced the 2020-2021 teacher of the year. It is Emily Allison. She was surprised. We lured her to the WEHM News room and did the announcement on the air. Pretty cool.
It was also time to have another Fireside Chat with the students. I will do this about every 6 weeks or so. It is designed to remind them of their responsibilities and who we are as a school. It gives the students time to reflect. They are doing great so far, but we still have work to do and it is a constant battle.
Finally, did you see the picture of the FCA at the flagpole last week or the picture of them at the stadium? All I can say is that we are on the right track.
Don’t forget that fall break is coming. It will be a nice break for everyone.
