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.


Here are more images depicting how the brain works when we feel BIG emotions and breathing exercises to help our prefrontal-cortex to get back in control. These are great strategies for all ages (and adults)!

Have you taken the survey yet?

ALL parents are encouraged to share feedback by completing the MISD Parent Satisfaction Survey. The survey is open Jan. 13 through Feb. 18. The results from the survey help us with goal-setting and campus improvement. You can find the survey here. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019-20MISDParentsurvey

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
