Freshman News

It’s great to be back again this year and am pleased with the students’ enthusiasm to begin the year.  Parents, ensure your student develops a daily schedule and has a good work area.  These two things are vital in how productive and attentive students are with their work.  If any students are interested in playing sports, all ICA students are allowed to try out for our sports teams at RMS and ACE.  Any students who are interested can see me for details.

Origin of the word generous:

Etymology (the study of where and how words originated) fascinates me. It always has. In fact, long before I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain for a year, or traveled to foreign countries on missionary trips, or taught, I have always enjoyed learning about the structures of different languages, customs, and especially cultures.

Did you know that the word generous is derived from one of the oldest languages in the world? It comes from Latin, the language that originated in Italy. In fact, as the Roman Empire expanded, the different variations of Latin spread throughout the Old World and people began to change how a word was written, pronounced, and used. However, although the spelling or the pronunciation of a word may change, there are universal truths that are cross-cultural, and cross-generational, and that has remained the same throughout.

The following article on the benefits of having a generous spirit is based on scientific research. I believe that some mental health issues could improve if more people would focus more on giving, rather than on having a “what’s in it for me” attitude. What do you say, ICA Scholars, ready to try being more generous with your smiles, time, kind words, and other resources?  Check out this article and tell me what you think at jsepulveda@helendalesd.com .
