A Note From The Superintendent's Desk -
The Mt. Olive School District Mission Statement is Empowering Every Student to Believe then Achieve.
I have seen thousands of students achieve success and face failure at school and I would say that the most valuable piece of advice that I have shared with them is TO NEVER GIVE UP. Here are two famous quotes that share the same beliefs as my own:
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe
“If you really believe in what you're doing, work hard, take nothing personally and if something blocks one route, find another. Never give up.”
The second piece of advice I like to share corresponds directly to never giving up.
Don’t blame others for your troubles. The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life. When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility. Because you got a bad grade on a test is not anyone else’s fault but your own.
By teaching and demonstrating these valuable traits, we are bringing our students closer to accomplishing the mission of the school.
