Our students are making goals for themselves for the coming year. We're asking each of our students to write down and bring to Mr. Raberge six goals for themselves, two of in each of the following categories:
School or work (as appropriate)
These goals should be measurable. Instead of a vague goal of "Do better in math," one could set a goal of "Get an 'A' in math." The goals should also be realistic, too: If one is currently not exercising, a goal of one's winning an ultramarathon next year might not be a realistic.
Mr. Raberge will revisit these goals with the students in August. By then, they will be able to say "Yes, I reached my goal!" or "I'm almost there!" or "I guess I need to step it up."
