The credit for this edition goes to George Couros. George is a “worldwide leader in the area of innovative teaching, learning, and leading, and has a focus on innovation as a human endeavor”. In a Twitter post of his I happened to explore a while back I noticed the two images below. Each with a very different meaning, but both, very important for us to wrestle with.
The above reasons people give up on things in life are very real. We’ve probably all experienced a plethora of them, depending on our age. So, as George encourages us in his twitter post, “let’s take the above ideas and shift them into more positive thinking”.
The photo immediately above represents a shift in focus. Couros says, “it doesn’t mean tough times will not happen again, or you won’t fall back into a defeatist mentality. Falling back is a reality. It is about not getting stuck”.
A huge thank you to our Student Council Advisor, Ms. Johnson, and all of our student council student members, for their incredible efforts to help put together a fantastic Snow Daze week! Students were excited to show their school spirit dressing up in crazy wear throughout the duration of the week. Our Snow Daze pep fest was full of high energy as our winter athletic teams were honored along with a special Family Feud event put on by Spectrum’s Student Voice Collaborative (SVC). The week was capped off on Saturday night with a very well-attended dance put on by the National Honor Society. Again, thank you to all of the staff and students who helped make this year’s Snow Daze one of the best weeks of the school year!
