The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life...The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for the day. We cannot change our past; we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can control is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I respond to it. You are always in charge of your attitude. -- Charles Swindoll
Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
I hope that this letter finds all of you well and enjoying the beautiful summer. While I would never want to be accused of being the Grinch who stole the summer, in just a short time from your receipt of this letter, I will be welcoming everyone back. In fact, our teachers are scheduled to return on Wednesday, August 27, 2014. So, the good news is that all of you have a little bit more time off beyond their return...
