You are full of potential! I am looking forward to watching that potential grow over your years at GDCI.
For some of you, this will be a time of uncertainty and excitement as you enter a new school. I feel the same stomach flutters and nervousness every year too!😳 Know that you are not alone. Your amazing teachers, and GDCI staff are there to walk with you, support you and learn alongside of you.
For others, you are excited to be back and see friends that you have missed over the summer. Maybe you are anxiously awaiting Cross Country season or band to begin again. The beginning of the school year is a fresh and happy time to reconnect and start anew. It truly is “the most wonderful time of the year” for me (as you read this hum the song for added depth and a smile 😉).
Commit to yourself that this fresh new year will be the best one yet. Perhaps you will try out for a team or dramatic production for the first time. Maybe you will read 40 books from various genres and blog about it for your peers. You might consider saying hello to a complete stranger in the GDCI halls once a day.
Whatever you plan, expect awesome things to follow! You will discover something new about yourself and others. Plus, you will be a contributor to the bright blue Viking spirit that makes GDCI so great!
I can hardly wait to hear about your summer adventures!
Mrs. Skelding ☺️
