UNSLUMPING
by Asa Faith (Bobo) Randolph
My title is a Dr. Seuss word from his book, OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!
I first became familiar with this book when one of my AdvancedPlacement English students prepared a bulletin board for my classroom. It was about one week before she and her classmates were to graduate from high school. Here is what she quoted:
Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places.
You're off and away!

I bought the book and read it to my two grandchildren over and over, before they could read. Later on, they read it to me, over and over, and I never tired of hearing the wisdom of Dr. Seuss.

Now, back to my title. Dr. Seuss says, "When you're in a slump, you're not in for much fun. Unslumping yourself is not easily done."

I've thought of these words many times since my mother died. Talk about a major slump - I was in one. Unslumping myself was not easily done, but, thank goodness, it was finally done.

All of the summer of 2005, I've thought of the wise words of Dr. Seuss in relation to Dora High School's slump. I really believe that the students, parents, teachers, and new administrators want the school to be the best that it can be.

As a proud graduate of DHS, I am keeping this is in my thoughts for our school: OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!!
