Wednesday, February 5, 2020 Day 1

Good morning. This week, we are celebrating National School Counseling Week. Did you know that your attitude can help you take on the challenges and obstacles you face in your daily life?

We all know people who are grumpy. Or negative. Or ungrateful. They find it easier to complain about their obstacles than to work through them. But as Michael Jordan once said, “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it or work around it.”

Babe Ruth, one of the greatest baseball players ever, had a similar attitude. “Every strike,” he said, “brings me closer to the next home run.” And he hit 714 home runs, a record that stood for almost 40 years.

Take a moment to think about your attitude. Do you approach things positively or negatively? Do you reach out to others for support? Reach out to your school counselors.

Attention 8th Students! The deadline for the TCHS field trip is coming soon. Mrs. Stoudemire does not want anyone to miss out on this great opportunity. If you lost your permission slip and need another copy, stop by the Guidance Office TODAY!!!! See Mrs. Stoudemire with questions.

Anyone interested in playing field hockey at Kennett High School next year should attend an informational meeting at 7:30 am on Thursday, February 6th in F109.

In honor of Black History month, we will be regularly including information, facts, videos to help give KMS students and staff a better understanding of the purpose and history of the month. Today we will share two great quotes.

Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated.”

—Coretta Scott King

The time is always right to do what is right.”

—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Have a great day KMS.
