One of the joys of being an educator, especially one in a small district, is that you have an opportunity to watch students grow and mature into young adults. Over the years we teach and coach you, we watch you transition from students who seek constant supervision and oversight in everything from your studies to the playground to young adults who have matured, and grown and can apply what you have learned, developed a point of view based on information you have collected and have created a plan for your future based on experiences and interests.
As we watch you succeed, fail, and grow we hope that you take every opportunity to learn from mistakes, build on your success and be the person you envision yourself being in the future. Since we are celebrating the turning of a new year and a new decade I thought the following advice from Benjamin Franklin would be fitting when he said, be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man (person). Take this opportunity to reflect on where you were a year ago, where you are now, and where you want to be a couple of years down the road. As your teachers, we are watching and willing to be there to help guide you on your path to who you want to be.
The following students choose to live out their lives by applying their efforts into not only being great students but more importantly great people. For celebrating the small and large success and for being true examples of what it means to be an Arrow, we would like to award the following to students for being November Students of the Month.
