Cold weather is here

With the cold weather upon us we wanted to take a moment to remind our families of the importance of proper winter attire for all of our young Warriors. Please make sure that your child comes to school dressed for the weather each day. We will continue to hold outdoor recess when possible. If you are in need of any assistance in getting a coat for any of our students please contact the office and we will assist you in making sure all of our Warriors are prepared for the cold weather ahead of us.

You can find the information below on the district website. It's bright and sunny out right now but we all know the cold weather will be here at some point.

Referrals by Student

Referrals continue to be low throughout the building. The graph below highlights the low number of students who have received 2 or more referrals throughout the school year. I am extremely pleased with behavior and climate at the Intermediate building.

The Counselor's Corner

Hello Warriors!

The lesson this month has to do with the Growth Mindset (with a reminder about peer mistreatment report forms).

Basically in a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. Words used such as “I can’t do this”, “I messed up” or “I stink at math” fall into this category.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Changing the “I can’t do this” or “I stink at math” into “What am I missing?”, “I can learn from my mistakes” or “I’m going to use some of the strategies I’ve learned in Math” can drastically change the outcomes students have regarding their deficiencies.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can assist you and your family in any way.

Mrs.Bridget Baker
