The culture here at Warriors of Grace is one of striving to always do our best. Yes, we know, as human beings there are times when we want to be lazy and just slide. The problem is that if you don’t actively try to resist that very human urge, it could become a habit.
Lazy people who just want to slide do not end up being successful. Time and time again, research after research indicates that it’s not raw talent that leads to success: it is passion and perseverance. The passion is what drives the perseverance. Once we have something to set our sights on, we can be motivated to keep working towards the goal. Part of YOUR family’s culture should include conversations that help your children (and yourself!) find their (and your!) passion.
So like in all the other ways we are trying to help you instill good habits in yourselves and in your children, we are focusing this week on making a HABIT of ALWAYS doing your best. Having a stripe test every month provides an opportunity to insist the students do their best. Being required to do one’s best over and over again creates the habit or the mindset: “of course I’m going to do my best!”
That is what it means to have the heart of a black belt. We’re not going to give up. We’re going to keep working towards our goal.
We also want to remind everyone one more time that next Tuesday, August 2 is National Night Out. Please be aware that there will be NO CLASSES NEXT TUESDAY!!
Also want to remind everyone that next week is Crazy Hair Week! A chance to go wild and have fun! Let’s see your creativity!
And the Purple Team and the Green Team are neck in neck! YOUR attendance or reading tally sheet could be the one to tip the scales!
