CMS Principal Update:  December 4-8, 2017

December 3, 2017 

Dear Triton Families, 

Principal Update for December 4-8, 2017

This week’s mindset quote: “Balance: Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.”

This Week’s Key: Balance

Be willing to do things differently. Recognize what’s not working and be open to change what you’re doing to achieve your goal.
