Yes if… Reflections From Our Disneyland Tour

Yesterday the 6th grade class took a field trip to Disneyland to see and learn about the great Walt Disney.

We got to see how Walt Disney designed the park and lead others by living out the four C’s.

Courage, Curiosity, Confidence, & Constancy.

It was a day filled with active learning, group building, and experience.

One of the lesson we learned about Walt Disney is that he surrounded himself with

“Yes, if” people instead of “No, because” people to make his dream of Disneyland become a reality.

A “Yes, if” person when asked if something could be accomplished would say “Yes, if” in pursuit of finding a way to make it happen.

A “No, becasue” person is someone who is not looking to find the solution and gives up.  What if the world had more “Yes, if” people?

Much more was taught and expericenced.  Make sure to ask your studnet what they learned and saw.

Thanks again to all the parents who drove.

Disneyland Tour

Disneyland, California

Y.E.S. Program on Leadership

Thursday, September 27th

 8:00 am to 4 pm – Cost $35 – Bring lunch.

 Our first all class field trip is less than two weeks away.

We are studying the life and work of Walt Disney and his ideas impact in our world.  We have talked about how he always thought big and in different ways to catch the imaginations of many.  We have already talked about how time and time again he was willing to take risks to accomplish his dreams.  We will continue to talk about the power of good story telling and hard work.  Walt Disney has impacted our culture in many ways and his inspiration to dream continues to ignite people around the world.

We are taking the class on a guided tour about how Walt Disney made his dream a reality through his leadership.  We will also get to explore three attractions and learn how they were designed and created.  We all know our kids have dreams, and some with dreams that could really make a difference in this world.  Our desire for this month and trip is that they can gleam from Walt Disney’s life and leadership.

I do have some bad news though.  Because of the nature of the tour we are only allowed to take three teacher/chaperones on the tour.  Pastor Steve, Miss Beyer, and I will take those slots.  We are still in need of drivers and if you have a pass you can enjoy the park while we are on tour.  If you are willing to drive and hang out in Downtown Disney while we are on the tour that would be much appreciated.  If you have questions please let me know.

Students will need to bring a backpack, sack lunch, and a light snack as our tour will be from 10:30am to 1:30pm.  We will have some time to snack during our tour.

Again, we are in need of at least three drivers for this field trip.
