ACT Question of the Day
"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be"
Ralph Waldo Emerson, (1803-1882), philospher, poet, author, essayist
As we begin our school year, I would like to reflect on the success of the students and faculty within our district. This is my fourth year as the Principal of Tuscola High School. I cannot thank this community enough for the level of support provided to our students and teachers. The Tuscola Community is unique in maintaining the emphasis of “The 301” being at the center in receiving support from numerous groups and individuals. For those of you who are new to our district, and specifically, Tuscola High School, I hope you will quickly feel at home and take advantage of the numerous extra-curricular activities and diverse curriculum offered.
In speaking for the faculty, staff and administrative team, we will continue to work diligently to emphasize an atmosphere of student centric instruction, innovative approaches, academic excellence, character, trust, and community involvement.
Education is a great endeavor with great reliance on parental and community support. In order to continue with our levels of success, we need to stress consistency with our students. Consistency in attendance, consistency in quality of work and consistency in behavior. Please be involved in the education of your student and emphasize the characteristics promoted by our Tuscola Traits Team; Be Reliable, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be a Warrior. Convey the importance of giving back to the community that has provided so much in terms of time, effort and resources.
In quoting Douglas Adams, “To provide real service, you must add something that cannot be measured or bought with money and that is sincerity and integrity”. Continue to promote the qualities in your student that will lead to their success, no matter what the endeavor.
With Warrior Pride,
Mr. Brad Allen
