As often as possible my family spends time in Walker, Minnesota on Leech Lake. I love visiting downtown Walker and all the shops. This summer, while enjoying a leisurely day, I spotted a sign that said, "Please take responsibility for the energy YOU BRING into this space." This sign is certainly Top 20! I often think about the energy I bring home to my family after a long day at school. Sometimes I have to reach into my Top 20 toolbox to "trampoline above the line" before I settle in for the night.
We, as parents and educators, are in the business of developing the most precious gift God has given us, our children. One way we do this at St. Michael Catholic School is through Top 20 Training. Top 20 curriculum is an integral social-emotional development component of our school family. As we teach and then practice the program, we begin to own the "being above the line" mindset in our daily life at school. Empowering children to be positive, curious, and confident directly correlates with their academic drive.
Have you heard your child say things like "Keep your Day", "Live above the Line" or "Confusion Rocks"? Join us on Tuesday, November 29 to dig deeper into these Top 20 principles. I promise you will gain tools that will guide you in all aspects of your life.
Please take a few minutes to list to Paul Bernabei's interview with John Williams on WCCO as he shares about discovering the power inside ourselves and about children being confused in school. You can listen to it
Top 20 is not just a program for schools, it is a way for families and communities to live. Start living the Top 20 way with us by attending this very important event.
