Day 48 (Day 3 Week 10) Learning from home: We have each other

At Trinity, we celebrate the present as we prepare for the future.

Let’s hear Sixth Graders’ Wisdom as they offer advice to younger students. I know that I need and will use all of this advice.

  • Cherish every day. Stay cool.
  • Enjoy field trips and outdoor ed.
  • Take a risk. Even if it doesn’t work out, you’ll learn from your mistakes.
  • Have a positive mindset. Never give up.
  • Don’t put others down; instead, bring them up.
  • Things might be hard right now, but everything will be okay.
  • Remember to do your work when you find out about it, and don’t procrastinate. Do your work at a table and not your bed.
  • Try your best on all the work.
  • Wear your seatbelt and stay in school.
  •  Don’t give up just because it seems hard.
  • Dreams remain dreams until action is taken.
  • Just remember that there is always a place where you will feel at home; you just have to find it.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and bathe every day.
  • Always come prepared to class. Go back and double-check your work.
  • Be positive. Life will throw you curve balls; be positive and kind.
  • Make sure to get enough sleep.
  • Keep working on your goals no matter what.
  • Always try new things. Be willing to work with other people.
  • Don’t be nervous. Be yourself.
  • If you have questions before the end of the day, talk to your teachers before you leave.
  • Don’t stay on electronics too long. Exercise. Take up new hobbies.

Our First Graders send love and advice to our graduating 6th Graders:


And, let’s also hear from our teachers, friends, and colleagues.

Again, from Andra Day’s Rise Up:

All we need, All we need is hope
And for that we have each other…

We have each other. We have hope.

Quoting Thomas Benefield again:

…it has been hard. Hard, but not impossible. Hard, but not without hope and joy and expectation. If we have to do this again, we can.

… we can because this is what we do; we teach our students.

Thomas Benefield



So… remember: Cherish every day. Bathe every day. Stay true to you. Persevere! Life will throw you curve balls; be positive and kind. Stay strong!

I love you, and I miss you.

Together and apart… we have each other.
