You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who’ll decide where you’ll go…
~ Dr. Seuss
Fall is just around the corner (although the temperatures might beg to
differ). School is starting for students of all ages. It means new
beginnings, new classes, new friends, and new experiences.
It doesn’t matter if you are just starting your education or finishing your
graduate year, go in with a fresh attitude. Find something you can look
forward to every day. Take control of this school year. Make it YOUR
year. You have the power to decide how much you’ll get out of every
day. You have the power to decide what you’ll do with the knowledge
Whether you are moving into the next grade or moving into a college
dorm room, enjoy every minute and take advantage of every opportunity
that comes your way. Be open to classes, sports, or extracurricular
activities that will introduce, broaden, or strengthen your talents. Unlock
your hidden potential and see what doors open up for you.
And when the bell rings and that last class is over, it doesn’t mean the
learning stops. Knowledge is power and your resources are endless.
Don’t be satisfied following in someone’s path. Make your own tracks
and see where YOUR path takes you.
