It’s a marathon, not a sprint

“It’s a marathon, not a sprint.” As we head into the homestretch of the school year, it’s going to feel like a sprint to the finish for many students. Between daily homework, papers, projects and exams, there is going to be a lot on your child’s plate. To finish strong, students need to think like a seasoned marathoner in the final miles of the race: keep their pace, stay focused, and follow the process that got them there. Rushing to the finish line and stepping outside of routine could spell trouble. So offer words of encouragement and guidance (as needed) along the way and help him finish (Boston) strong. Happy Patriot’s Day, Boston!
