Principal's Message

From the Desk of Principal Loftus:
February 10, 2020



Mr. Loftus with a small group of seniors in the Orientation Room

I imagine that most of us are amazed at the pace of 2020 so far in that we are already just a few days away from Presidents' Day next Monday, February 17th. (By the way, that is a school holiday.)

Here on campus, I believe the frenetic pace comes from authentic and deep relationships we have with our kids, high expectations for conduct and academic performance, and a genuine belief in their success. It's not a mantra. It's not a slogan. Pride is real. Disappointment is real. We literally communicate 18 hours a day about our kids. It's more than our way of doing business. It's how we, the teachers and staff, have chosen to invest our lives.

Enjoy the rest of your week and, as always, thank you for looking over our progress.


With Phoenix Pride,   
Mr. Doug Loftus
Principal

 

Are your kids in a "good place" socially and emotionally? This isn't an invitation to probe into their lives, but how well do you know how your kid is doing right now? Overall, things may seem well and good. But, if your kid is moving on to college or a career next year, maybe out of the area, have you had some honest conversations about the stress of leaving the house for the first time? Focus less on projecting your parental stress into your student. Your kid already knows you will miss them. But have they heard the statements of confidence you have in them to be successful in their next step in life? That's what they need, to reduce their hidden stress and apprehension, so they can move on with confidence.

What does that mean for kids and parents not graduating but coming back to high school? Spend the balance of this year focusing your conversations around what these remaining five weeks of school mean in the larger picture. Every Major League Baseball team plays 162 regular season games or 54 3-game series. You want to focus on taking 2 out of 3 in each series. That'll make you elite.

Enjoy the rest of your week and our beautiful Florida spring weather while we have it! 

With Phoenix Pride,
Mr. Doug Loftus
Principal
