This Is the Sign of a Great Thinker, According to Jeff Bezos and Adam Grant

Snippit:

*Because wisdom isn’t found in certainty. Wisdom is knowing that while you might know a lot, there’s also a lot you don’t know.

*Wisdom is trying to find out what is right rather than trying to be right.

*Wisdom is realizing when you’re wrong, and backing down graciously.

*Great thinkers aren’t afraid to be wrong. Great thinkers aren’t afraid to admit they don’t have all the answers. Great thinkers aren’t afraid to say “I think” instead of “I know.”

“I can truly say that Kavya is the heart of our girls track and field team. She leads our team in a quiet way, always quick to volunteer to run an event if a teammate cannot. She is always a steady and consistent performer, a factor in every event she competes in. Her work ethic is second to none, and is a big reason why she is all-state in the triple jump.” – Neville Anderson, Head Coach, Varsity Track & Field

“Grant is new to our track and field team, furthermore, he signed up to join our distance squad. Grant has worked hard! He has embraced the teams ‘we can compete with anyone’s’ culture. Grant’s improvement in the 800M has been dramatic and truly reflects how hard he has worked. His performance is a contributing reason why our 4×800 relay is currently ranked second in Class A Private.” – Neville Anderson, Head Coach, Varsity Track & Field

Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month was established by Congress in 1987 to celebrate the achievements of women in American history. Each day this month, we will recognize women from America and other parts of the world who have made important contributions to humanity.

Women’s History Month Quiz

A quiz to wrap up Women’s History Month – and to encourage review and reflection of all the amazing women honored here! 

The deadline for completing the quiz is 4:00pm Wednesday – maybe complete it right after Morning Meeting ends, perhaps with your whole advisory! 

The top scorers will receive their choice (within reason) of homemade cookies!

(depending on how many complete the quiz, winners may have to be determined by random drawing of top scorers)

Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
 
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.
