Oh, I Got This SOL (A Poem Dedicated to Students Taking Their State Exam)
The following poem, "Oh, I Got This SOL" is dedicated to Clara Huff, Timothy Huff and all students in third grade and up who will be taking SOLs (Standard of Learning) state exams in about two months. While I believe that our students should be tested on what they have learned throughout the school year, I DO NOT believe that it should determine their promotion to the next grade or be so heavily focused on that it causes our students to experience anxiety and serious doubt about what they know. To combat their fears, I have penned this piece to empower them to think positively and prepare knowing that they GOT THIS test on lock!

POWERHOUSE POINTER (Don't Add to a Full Plate)
I kept saying YES when I needed to say NO. The problem with this was that something didn't get done; oftentimes the very thing that needed to be a priority. The trials and issues of life may have showed up and caused me to fall out of balance therefore creating chaos with the schedule of what I already had on my plate as well as with the additional things I committed myself to doing. Wanting to do it all sounds nice in theory but the practicality of it all is not always so practical to endeavor. I have now embraced the concept of first eating off of my plate what I already have on it. No longer will I add to a full plate. Remember this the next time you decide to do more when you know you're already at full capacity." ~ Feona Sharhran Huff, Founder & CEO of Powerhouse Media Group (Follow me on Twitter @powerhouse4ever)
