A Message From Mrs. Lopez

Happy Sunday Falcon Families!!!


I hope that you are enjoying this snowy day but staying safe and healthy.


While we would want all of our students in attendance each day, we know that sometimes this cannot be avoided. We want to be sure to that our Falcons are staying connected to the classroom and teachers in the event your child is out for an extended period of time due to illness. Your child is able to access their class assignments on their teacher's Schoology page, as the teachers are keeping their information updated within those pages. Teachers are also available through Class Dojo and email for classroom specific guidance. In addition, please call the front office if you have any questions.


As for information regarding the latest Covid information through the county, please refer to the LCPS webpages for the most up-to-date guidance. As you know, information and guidance is always changing. Always refer back to these pages for any new guidance updates.

Growth Mindset

It’s important for parents to understand how their child’s mindset influences their behaviors, motivation, and achievement. As parents, you play a huge role in influencing the mindset of your children, so it’s important for you to model a growth mindset for your children. Showing your children that you are excited by challenges, see mistakes as learning opportunities, and understand the value of practice and trying different strategies will go a long way in cultivating their growth mindsets!


Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset

A growth mindset is an underlying belief that abilities can be developed through effort and practice. A fixed mindset is a belief that intelligence cannot be changed. When children have a fixed mindset, they tend to give up easily when they encounter obstacles, because they believe that they don’t have what it takes to learn hard things.
