I feel so truly touched by what my Autumn received in the mail today and made me so proud of the school system that we have chosen for our children. This may be nothing to some but I really appreciated this. This is what it said.
Congradulation to you! I am excited to learn that you have earned a spot on the 8Th grade Football Cheerleading Squad for the 2009-2010 school year. How cool! Please know that I am also very proud of you, as well. I know how hard you must physically train, how focused you must be on the cheers and chants, and how athletic you must be in order to handle all the choreography and tumbling in certain routines. This is no small task!
I know how much you wanted this selection! The competition for spots on the various cheering squads was tough. Now that you have earned this wonderful opportunity, I want to be sure that you know of the responsibility that comes with this great time in your life. You will now need to demonstrate class in all that you do, both in and out of school and at game times. Class is being considerate of the consequences your actions have on others. In short, you have to be the consummate "teammate" and ambassador for your family and (our school)
Enjoy this exciting time in your life!
Was that not so nice. All we seem to hear about is the bad in our school and how awful and unfare they are. I truly have to say thank you to all MY children's teachers and staff that they have had. We have been fortunate to have teachers pray with my children during a time when I couldn't be there for quit awhile (do to a brain aneurysm that ruptured) blog on that at another time. Another staff member prayed with my husband and I am so very blest that I can say we still have Wonderful people that love our Lord and are not afraid to let it show.. So I wanted to post this and say once again to all the wonderful Teachers and Staff that are out there.
