SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, November 7, 2007 Page 8 Annual ustana Coll ge Concert Ba Festival November 9-10 Tie their shoes I watched the stubby little fingers wrestle with a bulky winter coat zipper. Once again the beauty of life shined through in actions of a little child. Moments before, the cherub wriggled out of the chair and screamed with the impending' victory in a colorful board game that lived or died on the roll of the dice. A quiet question followed. "Help me please?. I don't know how to tie my shoe." I tied my best double knot. In school activities, the uniforms, the team chants androu- tines, the lights, the sounds of the crowd bolsters us to suc- cess. Inside the helmet, under the uniform, behind the makeup, covered by the blare of music or preoccupied with our business, children and adults are quite alike. We all are plugged in to a current of bold confidence alternating with some sadness and self doubt. This is normal as long as the two are kept in balance. I have seen the T shirt phrase often repeated for many school activities - " Winning isn't everything - tt is the only thing!" : This guarantees a message that all else is failure. It is important to learn our limits but also not to underesti- mate our potential. When our children do not do as well as we or they would like, they need encouragement and con- structive criticism to continue successfully. One of the things that you as a parent can do, is to attend conferences on November 12, 13 and 15. Visit with your son or daughter's teachers. Review their grades, test scores and what you and the instructor see as success for your son or daughter. Another thing y0u can do is to encourage your child to read. If you access the web site you will see several book reviews by our staff under the BOOKS THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE title. They are fantastic. Read them. Read the books. Read to your children. The school season now shifts from the wins and losses of Fall to the expectations and fears of the Winter Season. Our definition, the parent's definition and the community's definition of success should be a straight forward "Do your best!" As parents, we need to encourage and comfort; to look beyond the current ups and downs and to still help tie shoes Use a double knot! Jenny Hoffman, Ellie Vondracek, Whitney Frank, Jenny Baxter, RJ Pfarr, Nick Dusek and Steven Pfarr have been selected to repre- sent WWG High School at the 50th Annual Augustana College Concert Band Festival: November 9-10, on the Augustana College cam- pus.
