Good Morning Panthers! This is Ms. Budde. Would you please join me in the Pledge of Allegiance? I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
It is amazing to believe we are starting the last week of October and getting close to wrapping up the first quarter! I hope that you have found successes in the journey so far this year-both big and small! Now would be a great time to reassess the goals that you sent at the beginning of the school year. How are you doing? What has had to be adjusted? What can you look forward to based on the intentional plans that you have made.
I know that the school year doesn’t look or feel like you thought it might. We are all working through what school is and isn’t, but what I want you to know is that I am proud of the resilience and the persistence that you are developing. It will serve you well in life. Take pride in knowing that you are practicing skills that will help you in your future life as much as they are helping you grow now. Take one step at a time, set goals, make a plan and you will continue to make great strides toward your future.
Remember, it’s a great day to be a Panther!
