Don't Stop Until You CROSS the Finish Line!

As Learning Coaches, sometimes we see that our students want to give in and quit the school year as soon as the finish line is in view. Teachers scratch their heads over the same phenomenon.

"Who," we ask, "slows down and gives up as soon as the finish line is in view? How logical is that?"

Any athlete knows that when the finish line is in view, that is when you give your last full measure. That's the time when you dig deep to find inside of yourself what you had no idea was there!

As we encourage our students to finish the school year strong, perhaps this video will help them realize how foolish it is to celebrate prematurely. Never give in before the victory is secure. As we encourage them, hopefully we, too, will be encouraged to stay the course and finish strong!

Take the Mindset Assessment to Learn More About Your Mindset

As a Learning Coach, where is your mindset on the continuum of fixed to growth? The Mindset Assessment is a quick diagnostic tool drawn from research-validated measures for people age 12 and over to use to assess their mindsets. Go ahead and take the assessment and have your students who are 12 and over also take the assessment.

May the Fourth be with You!

Every year, we celebrate Space Day on the first Friday in May. Take the time to explore the universe with your students to discover the importance of space and space exploration, and to learn how science, math, technology, and engineering help us explore infinity and beyond.

EducationCity has assembled a packet of FREE awesome Space Day resources to share with your Pre-K to 6 grade class.

What's Your Story?

Learning Coaches,

It is time to brag our your student!

Do you have a Graduation or Alumni Story you would like to share with K12.com about your OHVA student? Special achievements, ivy league acceptance stories, or special achievements of our 2018 graduating seniors are greatly appreciated.

May 8th is National Teacher Appreciation Day, so K12 would love to hear from students and Learning Coaches about OHVA teachers who strive to go that extra mile for their students and families! This is a great way to shout-out and share your appreciation for that special teacher.

Please use the >>Parent Share-a-Story link<< to share your story directly with the K12 PR

team!
