Word of the Day: Squaw- 1. a north american indian woman.
Hey guys! Gosh these past two weeks have been super jam packed with ASB and preparing for back to school activities.
I actually just got back from a board meeting:) Some ASB members were asked by the school board to share our CASC Laedership Camp experience with them; im so glad i was able to participate in this meeting.
As I shared my experience before the board, it occured to me that what I was sharing with them was truly touching them. The changes in their expressions as i spoke were promonent, and I feel that I really got my point across to them. This point being (for those of you that have not read my previous posts) that CASC Leadership Camp changed my life! It has changed my perspective on the world and how we deal with everyday life.
No one at CASC judged others and the students along with the staff were oh so welcoming! I have no regrets going, because not only did the camp touch me emotionally and personally, but it also helped me to improve on my communication skills, my success skills, and my presentation skills. I learned a lot about teamwork and I really am looking forward to this upcoming school year. Our ASB is going to ROCK southern california's schools, and I really hope that we can be an example to the students, the parents, and the community to get involved. Excelsior High School has a lot to offer:D
This past week, I was appointed as a counselor for an ASB retreat that our school was hosting for all the new ASB members. Our Activities Director wanted the retreat to be like a mini CASC Camp, and so all the councelors were assigned to their own group of students that they were responsible for training.
All in all, the retreat was an absolute success! I had soooo much fun, and i think the most rewarding part was knowing that it was and is my job to set the example not only to my counsel, but for all the students at my school! I wouldn't change a thing:D
Ahhh, i can't wait to get back to school. my school schedule is kind of at a stand still a the moment, but once i get that taken care of, everything should go very smoothly...hmm except for maybe adjusting my sleeping hours lol.
Wish me luck on getting back into the swing of things, I'll be sure to keep you guys updated:)
P.S. - sorry about not posting this past sunday! grimace will be back with more adventures i promise! we had some camera problems:// we love you all! god bless:)
