REMINDER- PHYSICALS (4TH GRADE)
Panorama Survey (Students Grades 3-5)
Dear Parent(s)/ Guardian(s) of Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade Students:
As you may already be aware, helping students to build social emotional skills is an important goal for our school. Between January 13-24, students will be asked to complete an online questionnaire that encourages them to reflect on their own mindsets and approaches to learning. The surveys will be completed during the school day.
These questionnaires have been developed by Panorama and contain research based questions and follow up data guided action steps to support student growth in social emotional learning. Our focus will be on the following competencies: Social Awareness, Self-Management, Growth Mindset, Teacher-Student Relationships, School Safety and Sense of Belonging. It is our goal to help students and teachers learn more about themselves and how they learn best by completing this process.
If you have questions about this process or if you’d like to learn more about how these activities help meet our goals, please contact me directly. Thank you for your ongoing support of your student(s) and of our school.
