Thankful for Each of You – Mr. Cox

Good morning Spartans!

I hope this email finds you doing well and looking forward to a break for Thanksgiving! We are so thankful to have you here, and for the opportunity to be a part of your life.

I encourage you to take the time this week to hug the people that matter in your life, and to let them know how thankful you are for them. I encourage you to take the time to be thankful for what you have, and not to focus on all that you may wish you had. No matter our situation, our mind set is determined by what we let our mind dwell on. I encourage you to let your mind dwell on what is good and right in your life.


I am personally thankful for the sunrise (see image above) that I get to see each morning on my way to work during these months, and I am thankful for the time that I get to spend with each of you. There are things all around us that we should be thankful for regardless of what is going on in our lives. I am hopeful that each of you will be able to stop and appreciate those things in your life, and that you will take the time to thank the people who make a difference in your life.

Smile a lot over break, and spend your time doing things that make your heart smile. Thank you for being awesome, and thank you for making our lives better here at Garden Spot.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Mr. Elias M. Cox

Assistant Principal
Garden Spot High School
