  • Thank you to the families who attended our 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families this week and we are hopeful to see more families attend on October 24th.  Next week we begin reviewing and learning about Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind.  

    Begin With the End in Mind means beginning each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination, and then continuing by flexing your proactive muscles to make things happen. One of the best ways to incorporate Habit 2 into your life is to develop a Personal Mission Statement. It focuses on what you want to be and do. It is your plan for success. It reaffirms who you are, puts your goals in focus, and moves your ideas into the real world. Your mission statement makes you the leader of your own life. You create your destiny and secure the future you envision.

    1. Join us for Cypress Sprinters tomorrow morning at 7:15 a.m.  Students in PK-1st grade are invited to jog/walk the track with a parent. 2nd-5th graders may arrive and jog independently.  Let’s sharpen the saw.
