Eighteen Random Rules of Life

Eighteen Random Rules of Life

This is Michael Josephson reminding you that character counts.

I love maxims, those concise capsules of worldly wisdom. I collect them and write them and, of course, love to share them. Here are 18 random rules of life worth posting on your mirror or, better yet, using as dinner-time discussion starters.

  1. Find the lesson in every failure and you’ll never fail.
  2. The likelihood that you’re right is not increased by the intensity of your conviction.
  3. Real friends help you feel worthy and make you want to be better.
  4. When you’re in a hole, stop digging.
  5. Don’t confuse fun with fulfillment or pleasure with happiness.
  6. Refusing to let go of a grudge is refusing to use the key that will set you free.
  7. Hating hurts you more than the person you hate.
  8. Counting on luck is counting on random chance. Your odds are much better when you plan and work.
  9. Being kind is better than being clever.
  10. Don’t underestimate the power of persistence.
  11. The easy way is rarely the best way.
  12. It’s much easier to burst someone else’s bubble than to blow up your own.
  13. You can’t avoid pain, but you can avoid suffering.
  14. Self-pity is a losing strategy. It repels others and weakens you.
  15. Shortcuts usually produce short success.
  16. Control your attitude or it will control you.
  17. It’s more important to be significant than successful.
  18. The world is waiting for you to heal it.


 

Stop Domestic Violence

over 2 years ago

Compulsory Attendance Law
All students are required to turn in lawful excuses for absences within 3 school days of their return to school. Excuses turned in after the third day will be unexcused and count towards your child's truancy status.

Excuses should be on a separate paper and not written in your child's planner.

Please note that :
A child ages 6 to 17 years old is truant when he/she has 3 consecutive unlawful absences or a total of 5 unlawful absences during the school year. An Attendance Intervention Plan will be done for all truant students. Depending upon the age of the child, continued unlawful or unexcused absences will be cause for a report or petition being made to DSS and or DJJ for further intervention.

Your child's success in school depends on him/her having a solid education background. One that can only be gained through regular school attendance.
