From the Desk of Principal Winters
Dear Bishop Hartley Parents and Students:
November Greetings! On behalf of the faculty and staff I want to express our best wishes at the beginning of what I hope will be a safe and meaningful holiday season. The first quarter seemed to go by very quickly and was filled with a lot of successful performances, contests, and events.
I am very appreciative of the efforts given by our faculty, coaches, moderators, and parents who are linked together by their deep personal commitment to Bishop Hartley as well as their selflessness, devotion, and care.
October 26 marked the end of the first quarter and, as you review your child’s report card, it might be a good time to take stock and see how successful your son or daughter has been in meeting the goals he or she set back in August. Please take a few minutes with your child to define new goals. In doing so, it is important to be realistic and specific.
Students: don’t tell yourself that you are going to get a 4.0, when you have been struggling to meet a 2.0. Don’t set yourself up for a fall; aim for a 3.0. Be specific about your plans to achieve this goal as well. For some, this might mean putting aside a set time each day for homework. For others, it might mean setting up a specific time to meet with individual teachers during our eighth period enrichment at the end of the day. Whatever your plan, start today and do not put it off until interims.
At this special time of the year it is important that we pause for a minute and ask ourselves just what it is that we have to be thankful for. If Thanksgiving is a special day for giving thanks, then we should know in our hearts what it is for which we give that thanks. In our little slice of the world on Livingston and Zettler, we are thankful for the opportunity to mold and shape young peoples’ lives, to provide an education committed to Catholic values and ideals, and to provide an education devoted to academic excellence.
We ask that you, more than ever before, continue to rejoice in all that is positive and good in our kids, our families, and our school.
Michael R. Winters
