Good morning and happy Thursday! HS students, enjoy your live
elective classes today!
Yesterday we were feeling the pressure of workload...today...I am on an
island. Only not just Whidbey Island. I don’t know about you, but remote
learning has me feeling pretty lonely sometimes. I am accustomed to
spending my day with over 300 people! Now, I just see them on a screen!
If you feel the same, please reach out to the counselors or principal, or
call the school! We are here for you!
High School Students with incompletes from last year, you should be
checking with your teachers and getting those remaining assignments
in. That goes for those off you out there taking Odysseyware classes
too! Make sure you are making progress! The end of the semester is
rapidly approaching! If you need help, contact us...we are here for you!
One last important note...these announcements are no longer going to
be daily. We will start sending them out once a week or as needed as we
move into the second semester. I want to make sure these
announcements are useful and full of important updates. So, we will not
have announcements Friday. Watch for our next announcements
Tuesday or Wednesday next week!
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
Do you know why ants don’t get sick? Its because of their little anty
bodies! Anty bodies...antibodies... Thank you Mrs. Bitting for that one!
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
In today's world, we greatly admire physical strength. Body building has become very popular. Strong, muscular heroes fill our movie screens. Athletic strength and endurance is celebrated everywhere. But being a strong human being goes beyond physical strength. It means being strong emotionally and mentally. How we will choose to use our strength is an important question to ask ourselves.
Henry Ward Beecher, American clergyman and writer, once said:
Greatness lies not in being strong, but in the right use of strength.
Today, take time to think about your strengths and how you use them. Do you use your strengths to support others or to hurt them, to contribute to or to take from the world around you? Then remember the words of Henry Ward Beecher and make right use of your strengths.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day. . . or not. The choice is yours.
