Ex Lochside Elementary student, Ryan Cochrane, was at our school today talking to our students about hard work, goal setting and being passionate about what you are doing. Ryan has a Olympic Bronze and Silver Medal in swimming from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. What a great way for us to kick off our 50+ Anniversary Week Celebration! Ryan's message was simple, 'If you are not good at something, keep trying and working hard.' He explained that he was not very good at swimming when he started but set a goal of getting better each day. The students were very responsive and gave him a big cheer at the end.
