Friday, February 10, 2017 Day 3

Good morning KMS, we are in day four of “National School Counseling Week.” Today’s tip is on the value of persistence. There once was a great quote on the label of a child’s Superman shirt: “Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.” You can’t put on a different set of clothes, or act a certain way that betrays who you are deep inside, and expect to be successful. The path to success involves persistence. Christopher Reeve, the man who played Superman in the movies, was left paralyzed from the neck down years ago in a horseback riding accident. But that didn’t stop him from living his life. By being persistent, he raised funds that will help others with spinal cord injuries live full and complete lives. He directed movies, acted and made speeches across the country. Christopher Reeve talked once about the value of persistence. He said “So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.” When he died a several years ago, people talked of how a man who could not move or even breathe without assistance managed to live a full life through determination and sheer will. Through tragedy and the persistence that followed, he truly became a super man. As Calvin Coolidge, our 30th president, once said, “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. The slogan ‘Press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” You are closer to success than you think. Don’t give up. Be persistent in your pursuit of excellence.

Today’s question that the KMS Guidance Department wants you to answer for a chance winning a prize is: What are you persistent with in your life to achieve your goals? Please drop your answer off at the guidance department. Enjoy the video of our KMS classmates dreaming of their future careers. Today is the day that you can start building the path to your dream job. Drop by the guidance department to discuss your career goals with your school counselor.

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 Day 2

Good morning, KMS on this third day “National School Counseling Week.” One of the most important things you can do to build for your future is to take your education seriously. Author and activist Malcolm X said, “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” How are you preparing for your future? You can begin by coming to school, listening to your teachers, turning in assignments. Small steps bring big rewards. Let education become your passport to a world of possibilities. Make it a great day!

Tuesday, February 7, 2017 Day 1

Today is part of “National School Counseling Week.” What traits do you think are important to be successful in life and build a bright future for yourself? Good character? Organizational ability? Kindness? Those are all very important but what about perseverance? According to the dictionary, perseverance means “steady persistence in adhering to a course of action, a belief, or a purpose; steadfastness.” Have you ever shown perseverance and gone on even when you thought you couldn’t? Former basketball star Michael Jordan knows a thing or two about it. Listen to what he has to say: “In ninth grade, my dream was to beat my brother Larry at a game of one-on-one. He’d beat me every time ad I’d get mad. In tenth grade, my dream was to make the varsity basketball team, but I didn’t, and I had to play junior varsity all year. When I look back on those experiences, I know they must have built determination in me.” Michael did not give up. He kept practicing until he achieved success. You can do the same. Just when you think an assignment is too hard or a sport too difficult or a book too long, hang in there. Keep at it. Perseverance pays off.

Today’s question that the KMS Guidance Department wants you to answer for a chance winning a prize is: Give an example of perseverance when you have gone on even when you thought you couldn’t? Place your responses in the PERSERVERANCE box at the guidance department. Please place your name and homeroom on the slip of paper that you drop in the box. For all students please contribute a line or two on why you love your school counselor in the hallway adjacent to the Guidance Department.

Attention 8th grade students: Wednesday evening at 6:30pm Kennett High School will be hosting a parent night for incoming 9th graders.

We have our next LEAD on Valentine’s Day. We cannot wait!

Make sure you are thinking ahead for the 3rd marking period. We will be pulling grades for progress reports Wednesday February 22nd. We should be thinking every single homework assignment every single night.

Please stay tuned for Buzzword Tuesday. (Clairvouance)
