March 2016

55ca6fa8302df.image (1).jpg

March is my favorite sporting month of the year.  “March Madness” or the tournament for college basketball has been my favorite to watch since I was a young boy.   I like it more than the Super Bowl.  I especially love watching the first round with the anticipation of upsets and great buzzer beaters.  The championship game is always on a Monday night and for years we have made fajitas and invited friends and family over to watch the game.  Even when my favorite team is not involved in the tournament, I still love watching the tournament.  The craziness of the games truly defines “March Madness.”  

Schools go through a March Madness as well.  We are heading into spring break.  Students and staff are all anxious for the break from school.  Senior events are beginning and the craziness of grades, college applications, senior romances, and the anxiety of leaving high school are all part of the madness.  Seniors are stressing the procrastinated Saturday school hours and crunching to ensure all graduation requirements are met.  Freshmen through juniors are picking classes for the upcoming school year.  Right after Spring Break we come back to testing as well.  It is the educational version of “March Madness.”   

So tips for all students.  Be calm.  There is a lot going on and it is important to prioritize, manage, and balance that load.  Set up goals and priorities and then work off a checkoff list.  It always helps me to check things off a list.  It helps me see that tasks are being accomplished, and I am moving forward.  As I see items checked off the list I feel the stress come off the shoulders for a few minutes until the next list begins.  Continue to work hard and be persistent in all of your classes.  Lastly, ask for help if you need it.  Just remember “March Madness” is one of the best times of the year.

Sincerely, 

Troy Brown
