Upperclassmen Call to Action Assembly

On Tuesday, January 21, we held an assembly for our juniors and seniors. “Call to Action” is a new program whereby we can challenge the upperclassmen who are the leaders of the campus. They have already accomplished much, but we also want them to finish strong in these final months of their senior and junior years. They heard a very poignant message from Headmaster Dr. Steven Lyng that he titled “Life is in the Transitions.” As noted by Dr. Lyng, each person in the theater that day - parents, students, teachers, counselors, and administration - are most likely in some form of transition or will be in one soon. In his keynote address, he provided the students with specific tasks that they can do to handle the transition from where they are to where they are going well and why these transitions are important. 

 

  1. Make a plan.

  2. Relish the moment.

  3. Recognize that transitions hold a special place in your life long memories.

  4. Show appreciation.

  5. Don’t forget your parents.

  6. Cement important relationships.

  7. Reflect.

  8. Saying Goodbye is OK...in fact it’s necessary.

 

This first call to action for the upperclassmen was timely for all. To see the program, visit the link at the Windermere Preparatory School YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=My9KVW42_kY
