This Week in Homeroom 9/19-9/23
The Fall Fundraiser began last week. This is a reminder that order forms and payments are Due Monday, September 26. (Checks can be made out to Salk Middle School.)
Our homeroom made an initial goal of 50 pizzas, we are close to reaching that with 35 pizzas ordered! They've changed their goal to 150 pizzas... let's see if we can do it! Thanks parents for all your help in making our fundraiser a success!
These are the expectations for your child throughout homeroom. These expectations help me determine whether your child receives an "S" or "U" for their quarter grade.
Habits of Mind -- Persistence
"The only difference between the expert and the beginner, is the expert has failed more times than the beginner has tried."
This year we have added a character development component to homeroom. We will be teaching the "Habits of Mind," with the first lessons about Persistence. In the next couple of weeks, we will focus on this theme and developing student's ideas of what persistence is and how to become more persistent. Here's a short video clip students will see on Monday that helps illustrates persistence.
