Our 2022-23 social media campaign, #SCHanceTakers, pays homage to the speech given by head of school at his Convocation Ceremony in the start of the school year, where he offers, "What would you do with a chance?" #SCHanceTakers will post on Insta, Facebook, & Twitter so be sure to follow along!
Taking chances can be not only challenging but frightening. But What Do You Do With a Chance? encourages us to be courageous in the face of fear. [...] So, here’s a little homework for you. One: Think about a time when you took a chance, such as saying hi to someone new or trying a new food. How did the chance make you feel? Scared? Excited? Worried? Two: Ask a friend, parent, or relative about a time they took a chance. Talk about what you do when you see someone who takes a risk and falls down. How do you encourage them? How do you intervene if others laugh. Three: Be a chance hunter! Seek out chances—ones that allow you to grow, ones that create a sense of wonder and add meaning to your life.
