Rock-A-Thon 2011

Tonite (this morning) is the annual Rock-A-Thon to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  This year we have a smaller group but we are rockin' away.

We made homemade pizza at 2:30am. 

Brownies are in the oven at 4:15am.

We are staying up all night long at school!  Gettin' a little tired:

Tradition. Pride. Class.

Where would we be without Tradition, Pride, and Class?

Last year we celebrated the 25th anniversary of "Tradition. Pride. Class." as motto for our school, our district, our community. 

Originally uttered by Coach Hodge for the football program, it has come to emulate a way of life for us.

With all the negative press and finger pointing our little hamlet has received this past year, especially the high school, I started thinking about what would happen if we removed those goals/designations/hopes? 

So this is what I came up with:

Tradition:    Without Traditions, we would forget, neglect and things would become shabby, both in appearance and in spirit, nothing to hope for, we would no longer "belong" to events and "ways" that are special, exclusive to our people. We lose our Heritage, who we ARE!

Pride:  Without PRIDE, we would be in disgrace.  We would be second rate, no reason to try.  We would lose our dignity, tarnished. We would produce junk, both in people and in product.

Class:  Without CLASS we become tacky, crass (course, unsophisticated). Gruff, dirty, crude, rude, rough, vulgar, cheap, gross, unrefined, get the drift?

So take a look at synonyms for Tradition, Pride, Class and embrace them, embody them, promote them.  They ARE Seneca!!!

TRADITION: Attitude. Belief. Custom. Legend. Inheritance. Heritage.

PRIDE: Esteem. Honor. Respect. Dignity. Regard. Worth. Fine.

CLASS:    Elegant. Excellent.  Superior. Noble .Gentle. Worthy.

In FCCLA, we can act out the honorable traditions that have gone before us, we can take pride in our goals and actions, and we can behave with dignity and class.
