2016 will go down in history as a year of surprises. People will remember 2016 as the year the everything happened that wasn't supposed to happen. At our school however, this occurs almost everyday. Our students are always surprising themselves that school can be a successful venture that leads to a bright and promising future.
Unfortunately, most people look at the Alternative School placement as the school where students go that do not have a future. It is also unfortunate that most of our new students have been convinced of this as well. They believe that a successful future is supposed to happen. This is the challenge; convincing these student that no matter the past, there is always a future that they control. It belongs to them and they can do anything they want with it.
It's a New Year. What are you going to do with your future? What's supposed to happen, or are you going to surprise us?
