Eagles' Learning Takes Flight

East Lawrence High School Newsletter - 10.3.14


Well, we have the 1st seven weeks of school behind us.  Report Cards will go out today (Friday, Oct. 3rd). Congratulations to those of you who have worked diligently to make the grades you set out to achieve.  To those who don't feel you are where you need to be, set another goal, design a plan of action, and keep making progress.  Please let me know if I can help in any way.  Eagles' learning is taking flight... Let's keep flying higher.  

I'll share a quote I often use from Tony Dungy, a dynamic coach in the NFL and a man of integrity in life.  "Success is uncommon and not to be enjoyed by the common man.  I'm looking for uncommon people because we want to be successful not average."  Let's don't just settle for average...let's be uncommon...in our teaching, learning, parenting, character, and even in our dreaming for the future.  And let's challenge others to be uncommon as well.  After all, doing the common things in an uncommon way will command the attention of others.
