On September 16th, middle school students were introduced to Chief Judge Honorable Richard J. Garcia, Probate Court Judge for Ingham County. Judge Garcia was asked to visit Dansville Middle School to help strengthen the message about the importance of being on time to school every day. In addition to this, Judge Garcia stressed the idea that students need a goal in their lives they are passionate about, and more importantly a plan on how they will achieve that goal. He asked students to follow three simple rules: 1.) Find something they love to do and make it their career 2.) Decide between right and wrong (and always imagine their grandparents sitting right next to them when they make that final decision) and 3.) Be on time, EVERY time! We want students to understand the importance of establishing routines, like being on time to school and to class, at a young age so it becomes a norm in their everyday life. Judge Garcia was very receptive with the students, and it was great having him visit us here at Dansville Schools, we hope he visits again in the future!
