Carol Dweck - A Study on Praise and Mindsets

Monday Visitor

Dr. Carnes' granddaughter, Ella, is visiting our school on Monday AM to learn more about what an administrator does. She'll be welcoming the students with me, help me with my Learning Club, and take a tour of the bldg. Please give her a warm Roadrunner welcome.


Anyone have an extra CRES t-shirt that would fit a fifth grader? Seems like it would be great to gift her with one.

Book Character Spirit Day

Looking forward to seeing what great book characters we can represent on Dec. 5. The internet has lots of suggestions if you are needing help. Also, check with others if you need ideas.


Thanks, all, for supporting our Student Council.
