It is hard to believe that it is already almost half way through the month of January. In classes this month we have been talking about goals. What are they? How should you set them? What is the difference between a 'wish' and a goal? The whole school has been thinking about what goals they want to set. We are making short, mid, and long time goals and writing them down. Several years ago, we did this as a school and I am taking those goals out of the file and students are looking at them. It is amazing how much we can change over the years and subsequently that often changes what is important to us. Many of the younger students are working on a goal of drinking more water. Whereas the older students have more concrete individualized goals such as being cleaner at home, more organized, or getting their important stuff done first. What are you wanting to do new this new year?
