Changing Lives, Building Character

Our fifth through twelfth-grade teachers had the pleasure of having guest speaker Coach Dennis Parker speak to them about his building character program. Coach Parker has coached football for numerous high schools and at the University of North Texas and Texas Lutheran University. He now runs the "Changing Lives Building Character" program with his wife, Merry Parker, where they help change lives in schools, locker rooms, and communities.

After speaking with our teachers, Coach Parker spoke to our students about the 36-character traits he implements in his program. Some of these character traits include a positive attitude, making good decisions, and having values. Starting on Monday, October 31st, our Jr. High and High School students will begin Coach Parker's 36-week course during their homeroom classes.

Thank you, Coach Parker and Mrs. Parker, for coming to speak to our teachers and staff. We can't wait to see the changes you helped make in our lives!
