Popularity is always a hot topic in Secondary schools. Everyone seems to want a piece of it. But as this week's article explains, popularity may not necessarily be all it's cracked up to be. Without knowing it, kids might be setting themselves up for immediate and future failures when they seek popularity at any costs. While the article covers different aspects about popularity, there is one part that I feel that it has failed to mention. Those that are popular through status become prisoners to popularity. They do whatever it takes to keep their status, even when they know what they are doing is wrong or against their family's morals. This pours over into adulthood. How many of us found ourselves saying things about others in conversations that we know are not right? This is our desire to fit in or be popular taking over. That's why it's important to teach our kids that popularity isn't always all that it is cracked up to be.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
