Some weeks are harder than others. Sometimes it feels like we work so hard to get everything completed only to look back on all the things that still need to be done. I think that is the reality a lot us face. Despite our best efforts, we sometimes still come up short. Whether you are an educator, plumber, attorney or stay-at-home mom, nobody is immune to these feelings. The students here at MJHS also feel this pressure. I have had more students in my office this week to discuss grades than anything else. I actually like this because it shows me that these students are concerned about their grades and performance in class. I try to put their minds at ease by using the analogy of a football game. Each grading period is like a football game and the progress report is like half-time. It shows what adjustments need to be made in the second half to come out on top. Sometimes parents forget this too. We all want our children to do the best and to be the best. What is important is that each student is trying their hardest and performing to their full potential. So, rather than encouraging students to bring home straight A’s all the time, we should be encouraging them to reach for their full potential and strive to do their best in everything they attempt. If that is straight A’s then wonderful. If that is A’s, B’s and the occasional C then it is wonderful as well. Encourage your children to be the best by doing their best. That is my goal for every student here at Moody Jr. High! Below are some resources that might be helpful.
