Dear EVCS Students,
Welcome to the first School-Wide morning meeting of the new school year! It’s so great to be with all of you, singing loud and proud together again.
Each time we get together for SWMM we reflect on our school’s core values. Today I want to focus on our core value self awareness. The teachers and I want you to learn more about how your brains work so you can be in charge of your own learning. We also want you to become good at setting meaningful goals for your learning, and then tracking your progress towards meeting those goals. This is part of what it means to have self awareness in school.
The start of the school year is a great time for all of us to think about what we hope to accomplish, or ways that we may want to grow as a student and as a person. Give a thumbs up if you have been working on writing your Hopes and Dreams for the year in your classroom.
Right now I want everyone to think about one really big goal for the year. We’re going to take three deep breaths together, and when we do I want you to focus on that goal.
I know that with hard work every one of you will be able to meet your goals! And we are here to help you along the way. I’m looking forward to watching you grow this year.
Big thanks so much to all of the parents who came this morning, huge thanks to the SWMM house band, and thank you to everyone who sang loud and proud. Have a great day and great week everyone.
