Dear Parents,
Work is the virtue the children will learn about during the month of March. Using “The Children’s Book of Virtues” the children will learn what the virtue is and how work is important.

We all know that hard work pays off in the form of success. As the famous Thomas Edison quote goes “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration”. The result of hard work is often incentive enough for us to put our noses to the grindstone and plug away at our goals. However, in addition to the obvious rewards of our hard work, we can reap other, often overlooked benefits from our hard work.

Hard work can give us a competitive edge; setting us apart from our competition. Kobe Bryant was known for honing and perfecting his basketball skills, he was able to set himself apart from the pack through his relentless pursuit to improve himself. He is being remembered as someone who left nothing on the court!!!

Hard work leads to self-improvement; an opportunity to improve ourselves. Hard work will help us develop self-discipline and focus. Another hidden benefit is increased motivation and inspiration. The satisfaction of accomplishment leaves us feeling a new sense of energy and focus for our next goal. 

Personally, I know hard work can be challenging but not impossible as we have the dream of achieving our goal. Hard work helps us attain new heights. A hard-working person is dedicated and committed to their work. We must have an attitude look towards everything and a spirit of never giving up. Therefore, hard work is necessary and always pays off. Let us work together as we strive to instill this virtue upon our children.

Peace,
Ann T. Sarpu
