Happy Mother's Day!
With the end of the year quickly approaching, I figured it would be a good time to do a little coaching from the sidelines. Many of us are beginning to feel the Siren-like pull of summer - endless days of sun, vacations, pools, and barbecues are dancing like sugar plums in our heads. With only 17 schooldays left, it's hard not to succumb to summer's wily ways. Nonetheless, there is still important work to be done. Books need to be finished, projects completed, and tests taken. In fact, the grades for this quarter are far from determined. That's why it is so crucial for students to remain focused and thoughtful. It's not too late to achieve the goals set at the onset of third quarter. Unfortunately, it's also not too late to lose momentum. Remind your children to regularly check the portal, review their work, act thoughtfully, and avoid procrastination. A strong finish is a rewarding way to end the year.
