Right now, we have 35 days of school remaining. Thirty-five. Three-five.

A school year is 178 days long, and with 35 days remaining, that means we have less than 20% of the year remaining (and for seniors, it’s even less that that!).

We’re all fully aware of how fast the next few weeks will go and how chaotic they will feel, and I’ve already allowed that to derail me from my mission— developing relationships with kids, showing them Christ, and helping them grow in their spiritual walk. I have 35 days left and am determined to make the most of them.

I hope you feel the same way and will commit to being all-in for the remaining 19.6% of the school year.

With only 35 days until the year ends, we have only 35 days left to make a lasting impact in the lives of our students.

I shared the talk below from Josh Shipp a few weeks ago, but I absolutely love the marble illustration towards the end, and it fits so perfectly with what I want us to focus on as we wrap up the final weeks of school. Let me encourage you to take 4-5 minutes to re-watch Josh’s marble illustration and be reminded that with 35 days remaining, we have 7 marbles left in the jar.
