Perseverance is working hard to reach goals – hanging in there and staying focused even when obstacles stand in your way. During a typical day at Anthony Burns, I see perseverance everywhere. When I visit classrooms and see students trying over and over to master a difficult concept, this is perseverance. I see teachers and paraprofessionals who face difficult task, yet persevere until they eventually meet success. These caring adults talk and use strategies they have shared to create just the right spark to connect with a particular child. They persevere until they meet their goal.
We can’t forget the parents who persevere in making sure their children have every opportunity for a first-rate education. They become involved in the classroom by volunteering their time, expertise, and by supporting study efforts at home. Take some time to point out examples of perseverance to your own children. Help them to set reasonable goals and applaud their efforts along the way. Perseverance is often the difference between those who succeed and those who do not.

May the luck of the Irish lead to happiest heights and the highway you travel be lined with green lights. Wherever you go and whatever you do, may the luck of the Irish be there with you. If you’re lucky to be Irish, you’re lucky enough! May you have all the happiness and luck that life holds – and at the end of your rainbows may you find your pot of gold.
