It is Time to Grow Up

26 08 2012

It is that time of the year when 5th graders become 6th graders and 8th graders become 9th graders. It is an exciting time of year, especially at Transit, where we get to greet a new group of 6th graders.  This is one of the most exciting days of the year, but it is also one of the most challenging.  It is a new year for Transit, which means we have to build a new Transit culture with new students.  While our small group leaders play a huge role in developing our culture, we also need the help of students.  This week we want to challenge our returning students to take on the mantel of leadership.  Also, we want to challenge our new students to get involved and being participating in small group.  Someone has to set the tone in Transit and their schools, and we want that to be our students.  It is time to grow up and become leaders.

Ask your student what they want to get out of Transit this year.  Talk to your student about why it is important to be an active part of Transit.
