Fostering A Growth Mindset

Take a look at these smiling faces. This photo was taken AFTER our school spelling bee this past Friday morning. Eleven great spellers started out on stage and in the end only Micah remained, but ALL participants remained positive and confident. That's because they have a growth mindset.

Having a growth mindset is more than just positive thinking. It is the understanding that our abilities and capacity to grow can be developed through dedication and hard work. Take a look at this LINK to gain a better understanding of this concept and to help you foster a growth mindset in your children.

Reflections Art Contest Update

Let's congratulate our two Wildwood students who moved on to the District Show! The District show was on January 10th, where our students received a special award and acknowledgment. This is quite an accomplishment as only ONE entry per category moved forward from the Conejo Council Show. Both students' art will move to the next round of judging against 6 Councils and over 100 schools! Congratulations and good luck to:

Benjamin Zone - 1st grade - Film
Shirin Loo - 2nd grade - Literature
