Growth vs. Fixed Mindset-Part 2

I don't know about you, but I enjoyed the cultural awareness training this past week. Although the content was tough, it allowed for reflection. My key takeaways from the training:

  • Learning is the evidence of teaching
  • Children learn through relationships, not around them.
  • The struggle creates the strength.
  • Lastly, if our team fails, we all fail.

What can we achieve (our campus, us, our students) if we don't listen to our minds when it says quit? The sky is the limit and we can achieve it. After all, it's about our mindset. This week our students took snapshots. Some students are probably feeling like they aren't smart enough or some may already be feeling like quitting. Let's encourage our students and let them know that they can achieve anything if they set a goal and work towards it. We can do the same and this will be discussed in goal setting conferences this week. We are so excited to meet with each one of you to discuss your goal for this year. In a few short weeks, our students will begin goal setting in their data binders. Let's set the stage by getting them thinking about what they want to achieve academically here at CE.

Below are links of growth mindset videos for our students to view. Feel free to use these with students in your classes:

Remember that our goal each day is 98% attendance in each grade level. If students are absent for three days consecutively, please remember to place a phone call home to parents. Ms. Nunn and Ms. Galvan will be coming around each day before 9:00 am checking to see which students are absent so that we can check on them.
