Over the next 5 minutes, I’d like to introduce you to our vision for Parkside…
It’s all about making good things happen for yourselves while you’re here at Parkside.
Please give your full attention to the screen and the words. We don’t want you to miss out on it.
Thanks for your attention, everyone.
Over the coming weeks, let’s all start thinking how we can cross the line in more areas of our lives here at Parkside – in our classes… in our activities… in our sports… at home too maybe.
Remember we’re all responsible for ourselves and our results… regardless of the challenges we face… regardless of the difficult people we’ll bump into from time to time.
Let those lines you cross as you come into the school, step into your classrooms, step into the gym, help you remember to commit to making good things happen for yourselves and the people around you, whatever you may be working on.
I’m counting on you. Let’s count on each other with this. Let’s go to work, Let’s make good things happen for ourselves and the people around us.
REMEMBER – SUCCESS is the ONLY option at PARKSIDE.
Oh, am I in trouble!
