Throughout the year your student will be challenged not only in the classroom, but outside as well. This challenge is one that will hopefully prepare them for future success in the middle and high school. Respect and Responsibility are the main challenges that our students will face. By creating an environment that challenges the students, it also prepares them for the road ahead. They will be ready for the transitionto becoming a responsible teenager and young adult.
The Ant and the GrasshopperIn a field one summer's day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart's content. An Ant passed by bearing along with great toil an ear of corn he was taking to the nest. "Why not come and chat with me," said the Grasshopper, "instead of toiling and moiling in that way?" "I am helping to lay up food for the winter," said the Ant, "and recommend you to do the same." "Why bother about winter?" said the Grasshopper. “We have got plenty of food at present." But the Ant went on its way and continued its toil. When the winter came the Grasshopper had no food and found itself dying of hunger, while it saw the ants distributing every day corn and grain from the stores they had collected in the summer. Then the Grasshopper knew: It is best to prepare for the days of necessity.
