Carol Dweck - A Study on Praise and Mindsets

Praise Effort

Today report cards will be sent home. Report cards are a communication tool that scholars can use to create learning goals. It should never be used as a negative experience for your scholar. We hope that you will take time to view the video linked above before reading your scholar's report card. Remember to praise your scholars efforts not just the grades. Our scholars SOAR!

With Hawk Pride,

Tracy D. Hilliard

Hi Hawks! Thank you for a great Restaurant Night! We raised almost 300.00! What a great start of the year ! It was awesome to see families meeting outside of school to enjoy a meal together!

PTA is very happy to announce a Green Chair for our school. Juli Wu will be helping to continue the compost efforts with our volunteers. Thank you all for the continued support.

The Board is very excited that Juli Wu will also be our PTA webmaster. The website is being updated to include more information.

Thank you Juli!

We are also searching for a Fun Run Chair for next school year! Because the Fun Run is our only major fundraiser for the PTA, it is imperative for the Board to start planning now. Please consider volunteering for a great event, that directly benefits the students.
