    Project Wisdom

    Good morning, North Junior High. Here are a few words of wisdom.

    There's a lot to learn here at school, isn't there? . . . all the facts and ideas

    and methods . . . all the math and the vocabulary and the history. And then

    you go home and there's still more to learn, like how to fold laundry or how

    to cook a meal. I guess it can be a little overwhelming at times. But there is

    a trick for making it all a bit easier, and this is how newswoman Diane Sawyer put it. She said:

    I think the one lesson I have learned is that there is no

    substitute for paying attention.

    Today, make it easier on yourself by listening and paying attention to your parents,

    teachers, and coaches. After all, why learn the hard way when you can learn

    from the experience of those a little older and wiser?

    Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
