The Wisdom of Dr. Seuss
One of my favorite authors of all time is Dr. Seuss. He teaches many profound lessons with his imaginative stories.
For example, whether I’m looking at my clock, my calendar, or observing how quickly our school children change, he captures the surprise and sadness I often feel: “How did it get so late so soon? My goodness, how the time has flown.”
Then he softens the story by urging us to look back on our lives with a positive perspective: “Don’t cry because it’s over,” he writes. “Smile because it happened.”
His advice to help us find and celebrate our own uniqueness is timeless and wise.
“A person’s a person, no matter how small,” he tells us. “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
Dr. Seuss urges us not to fret too much about what others think. “Be who you are and say what you want, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
To get us started he tells us to get on our way. “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting.” But he also tells us to choose our own mountains and take control of our lives:
“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 to go.”
If you wonder at times if someone out there cares, let me remind you of Horton who put it simply, “I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant’s faithful one-hundred percent.”
Enjoy being you!
Each year the school collects information about our school and families. Please take a few minutes to complete the two surveys listed below. Survey one is an internal survey that will help the teachers and school administration improve our school. Survey two will let our management company and chartering university know how things are going.
Please be assured that your responses to these surveys will be anonymous. Your honest opinion is appreciated.
