Word of the Week:
“Focus means eliminating distractions, not just from other people, but the things we do to distract ourselves.” – Catherine Pulsifer
Focus is when you ignore one thing so that you can give more attention to something else. This can take a lot of self control, especially with how busy the world around us is. It’s easy to let ourselves get distracted, but this doesn’t help us reach our goals. Instead, we need to take responsibility and consciously decide what we want to focus on, because only then will we be on a straight course to where we actually want to go.

Note on Close Dates:
Many families go out of town for Holidays & 3 day weekends, which means that if we had class, many students would end up being behind when they got back. To mitigate this problem, we generally follow Alpine School District’s (ASD) Calendar and are closed when students don’t have school. We have worked these breaks into our curriculum schedule, so that students who attend our scheduled classes regularly will cover everything they need in order to test. We publish our close dates for the year in our Yearly Calendar. Please refer to it and plan as many vacations as possible during close dates to help keep interruptions on your path to Black Belt to a minimum.
