As we approach the end of another fantastic school year, there is tangible excitement in the air. Field Day, House Cup, 8th grade Continuation, and many other end-of-year celebrations/activities are right around the corner.
As the days get longer, the weather gets warmer, and the calendar gets shorter, there is a natural sense of eager restlessness that even the best of us may feel. This is the time of year when we remind students and teachers about one of my favorite phrases: Finish Strong.
If you have been enjoying the Rockies, Avalanche and Nuggets games, then you know how important it is to play your best game right up to the last minute. The players who relax at the end often end up with an unhappy conclusion. They have to play their hardest right up to the buzzer.
This is the mindset I want everyone to embrace. Play your hardest right up to the end. Spend a few extra minutes reviewing for that quiz or test that is coming up. Get every homework assignment in on time. Be on your best behavior in every class, raise your hand, and ask questions. Give it your all for these last few weeks so that you can end the year with pride and then enjoy a long, relaxing, and well-earned Summer Break.
As a school community let us all make the most of these remaining days, working hard and enjoying all the wonderful upcoming festivities. I look forward to wishing everyone a great summer in a couple of weeks, but until then, I will put forth my best effort and finish strong.
See you at the finish line!
