Slide: Learning a skill and setting a goal doesn't make you great at it. We have to do the reps. We will practice and record our reps each week on the skills we have learned so far.

Slide: Do you want to get a great job? If so, are you a great worker? Do you want to graduate college? If so, are you a great student? What is it that makes us great workers or students?

Mrs. Jensen, the school counselor, introduced the LIFT program on Tuesday, August 23. LIFT stands for "Life In Future Training".  Students will be learning how to set goals and how to reset goals if they didn't work out the first time.  They will be learning to do repetitions of their goals, just like a bodybuilder does to get stronger.  Lifting one weight at a time won't work, you get stronger by lifting one weight multiple times, which are called reps. The same goes for our goals.  Repeating an action over and over will help them to accomplish their goals.   Mrs. Jensen had her niece, Kayla Labrum, come and show the students how she has achieved her goal of lifting heavy weights by starting small and gradually adding more weight and doing more reps.
