Good morning and welcome to a new week.
Its Monday, and our second big Monday in a row!
I want to send a huge thank you to the middle school students who
attended our hybrid last week and did a great job getting so much work
done and following our safety protocols. It was a terrific first week, thank
you to the middle school students, their families and our staff for
making it such a success.
This week, its the high school students who get to return! For you high
school students, it has been 367 days since many of you have stepped
foot in your high school. Freshmen, you have had to adapt to high
school life without a real orientation, and Seniors...
Well, Seniors, let me tell you this. Whether you are attending the hybrid
or not, let me assure you that the staff of Coupeville High School is
eager to help you get through these final months of your high school
careers, and then we are looking at throwing a celebration like
Coupeville has never seen to recognize your determination and sacrifice
during your last year!
I recognize it is not just the Seniors who have sacrificed, so again, I want
to thank all students, 6th graders through 12th, those that attend hybrid,
those that don’t, and all of their parents for working with us as we
navigate these tricky times. Remember we all have the same goal:
student safety and student success. Having both the middle and high
school back on campus is a huge step towards us getting our school
All students please remember that CMHS is excited to offer our new
optional enrichment program to support students who are seeking
social community, academic challenges, and activities that stretch their
thinking. A schedule of various programs will recur every week, and
students can join via a Google Meet classroom code. There is no need to
sign up in advance to attend any of these programs, and students are
encouraged to drop in at any point. Please refer to the CHS & CMS
Enrichment Schedules included with this email to learn more about how
to join these virtual programs! Thank you to Ms. Ask, Mrs. Greve and Mr.
DeArmond for making this happen.
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
As I handed my Dad his 50th birthday card, he looked at me with tears
in his eyes and said...
"You know, one would have been enough."
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, great American writer, poet, and thinker, tells us:
Thoughts are things.
More than one hundred years later, science now tells us that our thoughts really do create changes in the human body, and, psychologists tell us that our thinking affects our emotions, our moods.
So the question of the day comes from a yogi from India:
In you, which is stronger — success thoughts or failure thoughts?*
What's your answer? Let's do our best to create a successful day by focusing on successful and positive thoughts.
With something to think about, this is name of narrator . Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
