“Our potential is one thing. What we do with it is quite another. Great things are accomplished by those people whose thinking is active in one direction, who employ everything as material, who always zealously observe their own inner life and that of others, who perceive everywhere models and incentives, who never tire of combining together the means available to them.” - Grit, by Angela Duckworth
Consistency of effort over the long run is everything. Many of us, it seems, quit what we start far too early and far too often. Even more than the effort, a gritty person puts in on a single day, what matters is that they wake up the next day, and the next, ready to get on that treadmill and keep going.
During these times of uncertainty, the team at Bayfield High School will focus on creating an environment of grit and perseverance. We will learn to adapt to the evolving face of education and support our students. We will celebrate our many accomplishments both in the classroom and outside our walls. We will be continuing to hold ourselves and students to a high level of accountability through maintaining a high standard of a positive climate and culture in our building. The team at Bayfield High School will focus on creating an environment of mental wellness and communication.
