"We Are Connected"
The Holiday Season is here and we are wrapping up 2nd semester at Pathfinder High School! Our students are working hard to complete their classes and we have some fun events planned for our kids! Mark your calendars for the first annual Pathfinder Film Festival is Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 5:30 pm. We will be showcasing student work and creativity!
In our "7 Mindsets" class, students are focusing on the mindset "We are Connected"! The "We Are Connected" mindset helps us to understand that everyone who comes into our lives can help us live our dreams. Through this mindset, we learn to constantly explore synergies with others, embrace diversity, and relish competition that will allow us to maximize our potential with and through others.
We all have belief systems that help define who we are. Where it can go wrong is when we separate ourselves from others because of these beliefs. Some individuals create walls of anger and even hatred to isolate themselves from large segments of people who could actually help and benefit them. We must instill values in our children, along a strong sense of self, but also cultivate curiosity and open-mindedness towards all people, regardless of differences in beliefs.
As part of the mindset "We are Connected" students and staff created the above bulletin board outside of Mrs. Harrison's office. It is a great visual reminder to all of us about our connections and being part of the great community at Pathfinder High School!
Friday, December 21st will be early dismissal. We will resume school on Monday, Jan. 7, 2019! We hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas break!
