The Principal's Corner
"Be the change you wish to see in the world."  
Ghandi

Hello Bulldogs!!  Welcome back to the Principal’s Corner.  It was kind of a weird moment today.  As I was going through my normal Monday procedures, working on the LED sign, I went ahead and I finished out the year, and I typed in the day for graduation.  We really are close to the end of the year, and for many of our students, the start of a brand new adventure.  We are excited for all of our students, and we hope you are all able to celebrate the next phase of their lives with them.

Coming up first is our elementary Fun Day.  Mr. Miller and the elementary staff have been working hard to get everything ready, and this should be a great day for our kids.  The event will take place on May 3rd, and will take place in the morning and early afternoon.  It will be a very nice day to get the kids out and active, and having fun. 

That evening will be our FFA chapter banquet.  The banquet will begin at seven in the evening, and there will be a ton to celebrate and honor.  Our land judging team will have just gotten back from nationals, and hopefully a little weighed down with some hardware.  However, regardless of how they do this has been an amazing year for these students.  For all of those families connected to our FFA program I hope you are able to make it out and have a great time looking back on a wonderful year.

This weekend we have a couple of freshmen representing Linn High School at the State Forensics Festival at Kansas Wesleyan University.  Their performances will begin at roughly 9:30 in the morning.  We are so proud of these two, continuing our success in Forensics, and getting to, at a young age, compete on a very big stage.  We couldn’t be prouder of Carly Kolle and Gunther Conley.

Then next week we keep things busy with a couple of big nights.  The first is our junior career presentations.  The juniors have all been working to gain as much insight into one specific career as they can to decide if whether or not it would be worth pursuing further.  Starting at 6:30 the juniors will be presenting their information to their peers, parents, and some staff.  We hope you get to come and see what these kids have been up to.

The following night is our annual Awards’ Night.  Students will be showing off some of their best work from the school year in the old gym, and we will then hand several awards to students for a variety of different reasons.  This is a huge night for our seniors as this is the night that many of the local scholarships are announced.  This is a wonderful night, and we hope all can come out and honor the many accomplishments of our students from this school year.

The big upcoming event, in just over one week, is graduation.  May 13th will again mark the end of one journey and beginning of the next.  I will have more to say about this next week, but I did want to pass on a small piece of advice from some of the many people I have looked to with a couple of my favorite quotes.  The world is tough and will change many times over in your life so, “be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahat Ghandi.  There are many paths to accomplish this, not one is necessarily better than the other so, “whatever you are, be a good one.” Abraham Lincoln.  And while you are out finding yourself you may encounter difficulties and moments that seem impossible.  There will be times when you will feel like you need super powers just to survive, but simply remember, “flying ain’t nothin, it’s just fallin with style.”  Jason Boland.  Good luck seniors!

 

Thank you

It’s a great day to be a Bulldog!
