A week

Hello, awesome students! Congratulations to all of our athletes for an exciting weekend full of accomplishments. I hope you had some time to relax today, in between studying for Korean exams and/or doing homework. Thanks to Ms. Grayson, we had a wonderful performance on Friday. Ms. Karen Golden told interactive and fun stories to make us laugh and wonder. Don’t forget her request to all of you, which was to pass on her stories to others. Our stories can be our most precious gifts! I challenge each of you to tell 1 story to a teacher or staff member this week.

Korean Tests:

As most of you already know, Korean tests will be held this week during KIS- Reads and Advisory, on Tuesday and Wednesday. Testing will run from 8:25-9:10, meaning that the first block on those days will start about 15 minutes late, at 9:15. Students who do not take the exams will need to report to the library during both sessions.

Uniform Fun:

As we transition into winter uniforms, you may be wondering: why do we ask our students to dress up at all?

Mr. Limkeman recently shared a research study with me, which suggests that if you dress for success, you will actually perform better!

The example given is people wearing a white coat and being told that it was either:

  • a doctor's coat OR

  • a painter's coat

As you might imagine, the people who wore the "doctor's coat" performed better on the task at hand. Which suggests both that dressing for success is important AND it matters even more if you believe that you are dressing professionally!

So, if you ever wondered why we have our students wear uniforms, maybe now you understand a little better.
