7 self-awareness questions to aid student success

7 self-awareness questions to aid student success

With the 2016-2017 school year upon us, preparing our students to start off strong is a necessity that must not be overlooked. School supplies and school clothes are definitely great but if we neglect to help our students become more self-aware, we'll be making a tragic mistake. Business genius, Gary Vaynerchuk says, "Self-Awareness is the game...when you know yourself, you win". I like to say, "When you know yourself, success is more easily attained. As the father of a 1st grader, 8th grader and 9th grader, I desire for my children to be successful. As the oldest of 7 brothers and sisters, I want my younger siblings to be successful. As a #StudentSuccessCoach of 15 years, it is a need for me to see our students start this year off with more confidence than ever before and be extremely successful.

Service at its Best

Service at its Best

Imagine trying to evacuate your home to escape a raging wildfire at a moment's notice. How would you be able to bring all of your personal belongings and animals with you?

During the early stages of the King Fire in El Dorado County, CA, which to this date has burned tens of thousands of acres, the Ponderosa FFA Chapter has opened the gates of its school farm to welcome animals displaced by the evacuations of our surrounding communities. Many of these animals had to be rescued after families were rushed out of their homes at a minutes notice.  Advisors, students and parents of the Ponderosa FFA Chapter have been helping tend to goats, sheep, pigs and an assortment of over 200 chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys.

Ponderosa FFA, Digging into Opportunity

Ponderosa FFA, Digging into Opportunity

A key word comes to mind when you think of the 2013-2014 year in the Ponderosa FFA Chapter; growth. From speaking competitions to agricultural projects, the Ponderosa FFA has provided excellent opportunities for its members to grow.

The Future Farmers of America, also known as the FFA, promotes premier leadership, personal growth and career success through vocational agriculture education. The Ponderosa FFA Chapter is celebrating its 50th year anniversary and is one of the 7,570 FFA Chapters across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and is home to a relatively small fraction of the organization's over half a million members.

Science Camp Preview Day

Science Camp Preview Day

Twenty-five eighth graders from Merryhill and Courtyard Middle schools came out last Wednesday May 14th to the Health Science Camp headquarters at California Northstate University in the Laguna West area of Elk Grove.

The middle school kids learned fingerprint techniques, and had their own prints taken by a Department of Justice official.  They also were taught how to take blood pressure readings and other vital signs on a Laerdal human simulator robot, which will be a lab section taught at the Camp this coming June 16-20.
