Woke Wednesday Message from Principal Armour

  • January 22, 2020

    January 22, 2020

    This week, we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man that dedicated his life to the betterment of ALL people.

    Dr. King once said, “The final measurement of your life is not based on length, but on the service and sacrifice to your fellow man.” Dr. King did not live long, but in his short time on Earth he helped change life as we know it for all of us, including you and me.

    Show gratitude to those that sacrificed for us by making the most of your education and making a difference in this world. The more you serve, the more you learn and the more you learn, the greater your life will be.

    This week’s Woke Wednesday comes from Claus Moser who said, “Education costs money, but then so does ignorance.”

    Take advantage of this FREE education. The price you’ll pay for not learning and not receiving your high school diploma will cost you for the rest of your life.

    Get yours and Stay Woke, Overland.

    Welcome Back, Blazers!

    It’s a new month, a new year and a new decade. As we walk into this new year, instead of focusing on the negative things you want to change, focus on celebrating and increasing your greatest characteristics. If you have a good sense of humor, make a point to make others laugh more often. If you have a specific talent, go all out to share your talent with others.

    It’s a new day! Do you and do it well, Overland.

  • December 11, 2019

    This is your last Woke Wednesday message of 2019.

    We are less than a week away from finals. As you prepare for your exams, I want you to take a moment to think about the importance of taking care of your mind, body, and spirit this next week. Without rest, you cannot perform your best. Without a sound mind, your thoughts can be clouded and unfocused. Your success on these final exams will move you one step closer to graduation, and in order to perform your absolute best, you must take care of your greatest asset – YOU!

    You’ve got this, Blazers!

  • November 20, 2019

    As we enter the holiday season, let's be grateful. Be thankful and appreciative for what we have. Let's take care of one another, Overland.

  • November 13, 2019

    Don't trust everything you see.

    Even salt looks like sugar.

    10 A-Days left. Pay attention, and stay focused.

    Stay Woke, Overland.

  • November 6, 2019

    This morning’s Woke Wednesday message comes from one of my favorite hip hop artists and actor, Mos Def who said, “The idea of peace and love toward humanity shouldn't be nationalistic or denominational. It should be a chief concern for all mankind.”

    As we enter into the holiday season and we celebrate Native American/Indigenous month, take a moment to evaluate how we treat one another. Instead of listening to the negativity out there, let’s vow to seek peace and love, Overland. Remember, we are more alike than we are different.

    Stay Woke, Overland.

  • October 23, 2019

    Sometimes people may not tell you how they feel about you, but they’ll always show you.

    People’s thoughts become their actions.

    Stay woke, Overland.

    Blazer Great. Blazer Proud. Blazer Excellent.

  • October 9, 2019

    There’s a difference between being liked and being valued. A lot of people like you. Not many value you. Be valued, and know your worth.

  • October 2, 2019

    Life is not about who’s real to your face. It’s about who’s real behind your back. We throw around the word “fake” as if we expect everyone to keep it real with us, or “Keep it 100.” The real-est people in my life lift me up, defend me, and protect me when I’m NOT around. Know the difference between the real and the fake.

  • September 17, 2019

    Put your phone away, and pay attention to those talking to you. There’s even an app for that…it’s called RESPECT.

  • September 11, 2019

    Whatever you do most, you will do best. If you spend all of your time studying, you will excel in the classroom. If spend the majority of your time playing a sport, you will achieve as an athlete. If you spend all of your time texting and Snapchatting, that’s where you’ll thrive. Your time is one of the most valuable things you have, be thoughtful on how you use it.

  • September 4, 2019

    "Pay attention to your gut feelings. No matter how good something looks, if it doesn't feel right...walk away."

    No matter what your friends are telling you, your gut knows right from wrong. Listening to your gut can change the whole outcome of your situation. If it doesn't feel right, then it isn't right.

    Stay Woke, Overland.

  • August 28, 2019

    Swag never put gas in anyone’s car.

    Show up to show others what looking good and taking care of business is all about.

    It’s okay to look good, but be sure you are handling your business in the classroom as well.

    Remember, there is nothing more attractive than someone that looks good, smells good and walks with a purpose.
