Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. – Epictetus
Our district is committed to the Social Emotional needs of our students. Our Ready for Tomorrow initiative is predicated on the development of three equal developmental areas – Academics, Mindset, and Interests. We know that a balanced approach to education is required to prepare students for success after graduation.
Part of a balanced education is instilling in this generation of young people a growth mindset that paves the way for future happiness. As educators we know that today’s “instant gratification” and “me-focused” culture is counterproductive. We work each day to model the joy of learning, of service, and of growth. We work to balance the social pressures students feel to gain recognition with the emotional needs required for true happiness. There’s no easy playbook or manual . . . it demands that each of us engage in the conversations and do the work.
