Hal and I are at a workshop today at the Oakland County School District. The premise of the workshop is wrapped around the book Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell (http://www.amazon.com/reader/0316017922?_encoding=UTF8&ref_=sib%5Fdp%5Fpt#reader)
Our discussion of the book has prompted me to share some thoughts with you regarding our charge at BCS.
You have heard us this past few weeks continue to invite all of you to participate in one way or another in our PTSA, Proud Dad's, or other programs at BCS to maintain our positive and progressive environment. With the one and only Proud Dad's meeting coming up on Thursday, October 1st at 6:45 p.m., I wanted to give one more push to all of you (dads and moms) to be a part of something special. It is essential for us this year to build a new community of parents among the 3rd and 4th grade parents while sustaining the community we already have with our 5th - 8th grade parents. This will allow us to have continuity throughout the years and will only make our school the best place to be!
You are NOT ordinary...you hold a talent, a skill, knowledge, or the benefit of time to make a difference in your child's success! I have linked a video that sends a message that any of us can make a difference...no matter what the barriers.
We are ordinary people doing extraordinary things!
