Mindset News

WBA is teaching our scholars about Mindset. It is important for you to be aware of what it is, why it's important, and how you can support it.


Several parents have asked where they can learn more about Mindset. You can watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUWn_TJTrnU, read Dr. Carol Dweck's book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, or visit the Mindset Works website, which we are using to instill a growth mindset in kids and adults (https://www.mindsetworks.com/).


Coming up next: Four strategies for helping your child develop a growth mindset.

Angel Account

Did you know you can donate money to a campus cafeteria Angel Account? Donations to this account help pay for standard meals when a student reaches the district charge limit. Cash or check donations can be sent to the cafeteria in an envelope marked Angel Account. Credit card donation can be made online at www. MySchoolBulcks.com using the Café Angel Account Donation button.

Volunteer/Chaperone Requirements

If you foresee that you will do any volunteering on campus or attend a field trip as a chaperone, you must complete a background check. This is a requirement in MISD. A background check must be completed EVERY YEAR. A completed check will apply to all MISD schools, but it is very helpful if you choose Willie Brown Academy when you apply. If you have not completed a background check for this school year (beginning July 1), you will not be able to volunteer or attend a field trip. https://www.mansfieldisd.org/parents-students/campus-volunteers
