February 2019 Newsletter
A Letter from Mr. Hershey
Dear Parent or Guardian,
Can you believe that it is February already? It is so hard to believe that we only have 4 months left of school. It is truly amazing to see how far our students have come since the beginning of the year not only in academics, but from a social/emotional standpoint as well. This is a topic in education that continues to surface is Social Emotional Learning. According to CASEL (The Collaborative for Social and Emotional Learning), "Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions."
If you take a close look at the Forsyth County Schools Learner Profile, you will see that that the characteristics we are trying to grow in our students is not only academic achievement, but also to develop strong personal qualities, develop both critical and creative thinking skills, teach students how to engage and contribute in society, and also interact effectively. If you have not looked at the Forsyth County Learner Profile, please take a look at it as this is our vision for our students.
Thank you for all of your help as we partner together to support your child's growth. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out should you need anything. We are here to serve you and your children.
The 7 Mindsets - Passion First
The Passion First Mindset teachers us that we are all unique expressions of human existence. It is vital to find out what our individual strengths and talents are so that we might connect them with our goals and visions for the future. In this mindset, we work with students to understand their unique gifts, their skills and strengths, and how to share them with the world to the maximum extent possible. Not only will they explore their interests, they will begin to identify their core values and what they stand for. The next step is helping them learn how to make their dreams into reality, tapping into both the courage and perseverance needed to overcome any challenges they encounter in pursuit of the lives they desire.
Make sure to ask your student about what "Passion First" means. For more information, please click here. You will find great resources on this link that will support you as a parent.
