3GStrong - Classroom Meeting Update

In our efforts to grow 3GStrong kids, our class meeting focus last week was to begin with the end in mind. Students were given a week-long mission to begin with the end in mind to unlock a present. Each day students answered questions about growth mindset, grit, and grace to receive the code for the lock. Classes brought the codes to Good Morning Bledsoe where we used the code to unlock the present and reveal the gift. Students opened a plasma ball inside the gift box which symbolizes the connections in our brain that can change and grow. We celebrate failure and mistakes as part of the learning process where students work to make the connections in their brain bigger, thus growing their brain.

Winter Party Information

We want to thank PTA for hosting our Winter Parties on December 15th. The Winter Parties will take place in the Gym and Cafeteria. Therefore, students will eat lunch in their classroom. Students may still purchase lunch in the Cafe, but will take their lunch back to the classroom. Due to our space limitations, we are requesting No Visitors for lunch on December 15th. You are welcome to join your child during their party time!
