In response to the 3/29/2012 post, “A New Principal Asks… Student Apathy,” a LYS Principal writes:


This was an excellent and timely post – I appreciate the practices and ideas you have expressed in this post.

SC  Response Thanks for the positive comment.  And your campus (a junior high school, no less) is a great example of a staff that is holding itself accountable to connecting with every student. I was a little concerned that the post was preaching to the choir (which I admit, many of my posts do). But that doesn’t seem to be the case. The post evidently struck a chord with the LYS Nation and within four day, the post was the most widely distributed of all time.

Keep up the great work and let the staff know that I’ll see them soon.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
