    Week of September 18

    Students who are not at OR close to being at least 1/2 way through the TOTAL number of modules they have in their course(s) will need to put in extra time at home over the FALL BREAK next week working on lessons & quizzes to catch up.  After fall break, grades in Synergy will be updated to reflect being at your half way mark at 9 weeks (of 18 week semester). Notebooks will be checked after the break as well. Please see me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.



    John C. Maxwell states it best in his book, TODAY MATTERS....

    Why priorities matter TODAY?
    • Time is our most precious commodity
    • We cannot change time, only our priorities
    • We cannot do EVERYTHING
    • Priorities help us to choose wisely

    If you bring your priorities into focus by answering the following three questions, you will have a better idea of what you should overlook.

    1. What is required of me? 
    2. What gives me the greatest return?
    3. What gives me the greatest reward?

    "The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook." -WILLIAM JAMES

    Week of September 4


     Ask yourself  THREE questions...

    1. What is required of me? 
    2. What gives me the greatest return?
    3. What gives me the greatest reward?


    Grades have been updated with notebooks and highest test score made so far in each module.  1st 6 week progress reports will be distributed NEXT WEEK!


     "Since you can't change time, you must instead change your approach to it."
    ~John C. Maxwell
