Friday Thoughts: 10 Days out of 10

As of today, we have exactly 50 days of school left— hard to believe, I know! The cyclical nature of a school year is somewhat of a paradox. On one hand, the days seem to plod along in a slow, steady rhythm day-in and day-out, but on the other hand, it always seems like a school year flies by. This year is no different. We’ve been in a steady day-to-day rhythm, but the end of the school year is in sight.

During our faculty meeting this week, I hope you were encouraged and re-energized when reminded of our mission.

I hope you were challenged by the idea of 10 days out of 10.

I hope the stories Chad shared gave you a broader perspective and a true sense of purpose for what we do.

And I hope you were reminded that we all— teachers and students alike— have things going on outside of school that we choose not to bring with us to Mustang Mountain, yet those things affect each of us each and every day.

As CAC teachers, we must respect our students and each other 10 days out of 10.

As CAC teachers, we must balance expectations with empathy 10 days out of 10.

As CAC teachers, we must balance consistency with compassion 10 days out of 10.

As CAC teachers, we must balance policies with grace 10 days out of 10.

Todd Whitaker says during his presentation, “Wow… 10 days out of 10 sure sounds like a lot,” and it certainly is; however, let’s go big and shoot for 50 days out of 50.
