Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. Good morning Coupeville Middle and High School and welcome to a new week.
Thank you all for being here this morning. Remember our health protocols are in place to keep you all safe and you are required to comply with them at all times when you are on campus.
All students please note, if you elected to attend school on campus, we need you to attend your required days or you will be recorded as absent. We are responsible for you during this time and we can't allow you to just choose to stay home or attend virtually that day. If you are sick, of course, have your parents call Mrs. Ford to excuse your absence. That applies to all students from 6th through 12th grade. Thank you all for helping with this.
Any HS students who need an option for the times between school and sports practice, please email me and we may have a place for you to stay.
The Writing and Art Society is still taking magazine submissions for The Howl magazine! Send photography, creative writing, art work, family recipes, ANYTHING!
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
Did you know dolphins never make mistakes?
They do everything on porpoise.
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
In West Africa, there's an old proverb that goes...
Not to know is bad, but not to wish to know is worse.
Let's think about that. Many children on the planet who want to learn never have the privilege of going to school. And then there are children in the world who have the opportunity to get an education but don't wish to learn. Which do you think is worse?
Francis Bacon, great English philosopher, says:
Knowledge is power.
Today, think about this. If you love to learn, share the power of your knowledge with others. Serve as an example . . . tutor others ... encourage others with kind words of support. If, on the other hand, you think that school is a waste of time, remember the words of Francis Bacon and ask yourself this: What kind of person do I want to be — power-full or power-less? It's your choice.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
