Encouragement . . . Opportunity Knocks
It is a proven fact that people (children andadults) need affirmation and encouragement in life.Opportunities usually abound for us to complimentor positively reinforce someone
—we don’t have to
look real hard for those instances and they usuallycost us nothing more than a little time.Unfortunately, we tend to notice more things thatare wrong and end up applying unnecessary energyor drama that often results in making matters worse.We must take time to tell our kids, other kids, andthose that influence the lives of all kids (teachers,coaches/sponsors, support staff, and administrators)that they are doing a fine job and need to keepmaking a difference. This far-from-perfect world isvery adept at promoting the negative or tragic issuesin society. We must remember that it is part of ourresponsibility to recognize what is right and good,and apply some of our energy toward making moreof the same happen. Watch for the opportunity toaffirm or show gratitude, and then watch the resultsof your encouragement. We could all benefit frommore acts and words of kindness.
“The most important profession in the
world is parenting.The second is teaching, and everyone is a
teacher to someone.”

grade at anytime through the Power School System.All you need is Internet access. If you do not haveInternet access, call me, and we can figure out away for you to stay
as informed about your child’s
academic performance as possible. If you see
something on Power School that you do not feelmakes sense, make sure you contact the teacher.
It is vital for your child’s progress in school
to be involved in his/her daily activities. Let yourchild know what your expectations are for him/her,and talk frequently about what is going on inschool.
