How A Whole Family Can Benefit From Adopting A Growth Mindset

The excellent article below states, "[W]hen we maintain ... a “growth mindset” (the belief that learning and challenge change the brain by forming additional neural pathways, and that we are all in control of this process through our own efforts) we have a stronger belief in the power of our own efforts, exhibit fewer behaviors of helplessness, and make more constructive, positive choices in response to failure."

Buckles & Bling Is Tomorrow!!!

Ok, yes, Game 7 and the fight are tomorrow, but they don't compare to the good cause fun that will be happening in Jubilee Hall tomorrow starting at 5. See you there!

Hope For The Future: Many Of Our Parents Have Already Received Funding, So Why Are You Waiting?

$30 and 30 minutes can save you hundreds of dollars on tuition. I am happy to sit down with any of you who need help with the application; please email me if you wish.



HFF will send a round every month until August. Applicants wanting to be considered for each round must have applications completed by the 15th of the prior month.

Register Now! Only $160 Until The End Of The School Year

Registration packets are ready! From now until June 5, registration for the 2015-16 school year is $160. This summer, the rate increases to $180. Tuition for K5-8th grade is $333 per month. In my very biased opinion, there is no better return on your educational investment in the city.
