I hope you have enjoyed Christmas Break, and I hope your New Year celebration was exciting and rewarding for you. It's good to reflect at this time of year, and give some thought to the things to leave behind in the old year, and what to seek in the new year.
I hope these items will be listed among your goals for 2015:
*Service: How are you working to make the lives of other people better?
*Positive friendships: Are the people you associate with helping you accomplish good things?
*Academic success: Have you reached the limit of your learning potential? (Hint: None of us has!)
*Connectedness: Are you involved in something positive at EHS outside of class?
*Vision: What is your next step after high school is over? Are you preparing yourself for that next step?
Remember our mission at EHS: To launch young people into successful adult lives of learning, service, and meaningful work. How appropriate at New Year's to remember that everything we're doing is about the future, which I'm convinced is bright.
Happy New Year!
