  • Prevents cramming in doing homework.

The winner is Harrison Hall

Habit in Action:
Harrison Hall has taken initiative to be proactive in his academics. He has advocated for himself with his teachers by independently seeking out help.

Additionally, Harrison has to miss several classes at the beginning of the year due to golf matches and he has done a great job of being proactive when he is going to be absent. Harry lets [teachers] know ahead of time and asks for his missing work as well as makes arrangements with a friend in class who can deliver his assignments to him. He has also been willing to stay after school to ensure he is keeping up with the material.

The winner is Austin Newman

Habit in Action:
Austin Newman is a great candidate for many of the attributes of a highly effective person. He is a stellar ceramic artist at FHS and has aspirations of being a professional potter. For the past two years, Austin has taken advantage of free periods in his schedule, including lunch, to perfect his throwing skills on the potter's wheel, even coming in on Saturdays to throw. He is by far the most dedicated and motivated pottery student at FHS. Austin is driven and understands the medium of which he is working with. He is actively working on his art portfolio with ambitions of attending college to study ceramics. The many facets of being proactive that Austin displays makes him deserving of this recognition.

2017 Habit of the Month - October - Begin With The End in Mind
  • Set Goals
  • I have the STRENGTH, PATIENCE and the PASSION to turn my DREAMS into my FUTURE REALITY...NOW ALL I HAVE LEFT TO DO IS TRY.
  • An effective teen must always set a goal in mind. You must remember the things that you want to achieve so that you can do a task at your best.
  • MOTIVATION, PATIENCE & DISCIPLINE are keys to unlocking your goals.
  • STAY POSITIVE AND NEVER GIVE UP.
  • Achieving your GOALS can make you a HAPPIER & more POSITIVE PERSON

The winner is Carly Powell

Habit in Action:
Carly's career aspiration is to become an early child educator. Ever since I met her, I have witnessed her look for any opportunity she can that would give her more experience and exposure to this field. She has been involved in the teacher mentorship program at FHS for two years. During this experience, she has had the opportunity to work with elementary ESL students on a one on one basis to aide in their further understanding of the English language. Carly also has stated that she would like to incorporate a great deal of music into her classroom when she teaches as she finds music to be a great motivator and asset to student learning. Beyond participating in Symphonic Choir and Findlay First Edition, she takes private voice lessons, and this year began taking private piano lessons so that she would have these abilities at her disposal when she is teaching. I often hear her practicing her voice and piano assignments during her study halls. She has an incredible work ethic and pushes herself to be the best that she can be in order to reap the benefits of that practice when she is an educator. To further her music study and understanding, she also takes music theory which will inevitably better her piano playing and singing abilities. This year, Carly also volunteers as a Senior Mentor to the freshman members of Voices in Perfection. With her already incredibly busy schedule, she comes to every VIP practice and leads the Alto section through voice modeling, the entire time building the confidence of the younger singers. She learns all of the choreography as well and demonstrates it for the students as they learn along side. Carly's personality makes it so easy to talk to her, learn from her, and want to be like her. She is kind, outgoing and funny, thoughtful and encouraging; all of which will serve her beautiful as she strives to become an elementary teacher. I have no doubt that she will reach great successes because of the way that she lives her life, planning ahead and setting high expectations for herself, then working to achieve those goals. Carly certainly is a student that begins with the end in mind!
