Meet your Principal
Hello, Owl Families!
We are kicking off the month of February by recognizing our Owls that have demonstrated the 100% Accountable Mindset, participating in the Great Kindness Challenge, celebrating the 100th day of school, and starting up our Spring Clubs! Despite being the shortest month of the year, February brings many opportunities for learning, service, friendship, and fun for our entire school community!
Did you know that Aspen Ridge is a Kindness Certified school? Each year our school community participates in The Great Kindness Challenge. We dedicate time to help our students put kindness into action throughout the week through small acts and a school-wide service project. This year we are asking students to bring in at least 100 pennies (or at least one dollar in any form - coins or bills) on Thursday, February 3rd, to support our neighbors in Louisville and Superior following the Marshall Fire. Together we are dedicated to creating a culture of kindness and compassion in our local community and beyond.
We will carry the message of kindness throughout the month as we learn and practice the Attitude of Gratitude Mindset. This mindset teaches us the importance of seeking the positives from every experience and being thankful for all we have - and we have so much to be grateful for at Aspen Ridge! By choosing to focus on the positives, we can continue on our path towards extraordinary success. Click HERE to learn more about the Attitude of Gratitude Mindset!
I hope you will join us in our efforts to demonstrate kindness and practice gratitude throughout the month. The words of Maya Angelou remind us that "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel." Kindness is a gift that everyone can afford to give.
Rachel Miller, Principal
