Weekly News from Glenhope 3rd Grade! (Volume 16-17, Issue 2)
Unfortunately for students who continue to forget to bring their iPad or charge it, they will be missing some recess time to make up the work they missed.

Glenhope is also doing its annual Greenback fundraiser. Instead of doing a "catalog" type fundraiser where your child has to ask neighbors, friends, and relatives to order products, we hold a Greenback fundraiser instead. If you would like to donate check or cash, you can send it in to school. All Greenback money goes directly to support our needs. For example, a portion of this year's Greenback money will be used to purchase movement stools for every classroom. Each grade level also will receive a $500 stipend from Greenback funds to purchase much needed items. Thank you for your support!
Finally, technology acknowledgements were sent home this week with your child. Please make sure you sign this and return it to school. You will also need to make sure you have paid the mandatory $50 iPad fee. This fee is a one time fee and will last until your child is out of elementary school. Most of you paid $35 last year, so you only owe $15.

We also recommend a wonderful book by Carol Dweck called Mindset. It is an easy read and describes growth mindset vs. fixed mindset in an understandable way.
LEAD with GCISD
One major aspect of our district's 10-year strategic plan is the heavy implementation and use of technology.
As we continue our digital journey, we are trying to instill important lessons regarding technology with our 3rd graders. One important element we have discussed with students is the development of their Digital Footprint. Throughout the year, we will work to help them understand the importance of being safe online as well as leaving a digital footprint to be proud of, instead of ashamed of.
