Many of you may be counting down the days until the end of the school year. Well guess what? After tomorrow (April 22nd), you will have 4 Mondays and 4 Fridays left to see your teacher's bright, smiling face. You may think, "I can't wait until the end!", but is it really the end?
Can I answer this for you? You know I am going to give you an answer anyway, right?
Yes, this school year ends, and no, it is not really the end.
I know what you are saying: "What the heck, kind of answer is that, yes and no?"
Here’s the deal!
Learning is ongoing throughout life. What is happening to you, at this point, is that you are evolving to the next phase of your life. This is whether you move to the next grade or are required to repeat the current grade. It all is a phase that is pushing you to be the great and awesome you on your journey to being a productive citizen of the world.
I want to encourage you to take this opportunity to reflect on what you learned this school year because guess what, you learned a lot. You may not remember everything, but I bet if you think about it all, you have read books and stories you knew nothing about before this school year. Maybe you learned a lesson or two in math that you thought was a special code that could never be broken, but you learned it.
After you read this blog entry, I want you to repeat this TRUE statement about yourself:
I am beautifully and wonderfully made to accomplish great things because I learn everyday!
