Mindset News

WBA is teaching our scholars about Mindset. It is important for you to be aware of what it is, why it's important, and how you can support it.


We find value in teaching WBA scholars about their brain and how it functions. We specifically want them to understand that when their emotional center is in control, they often cannot reason, problem solve, or think critically. Check out this video and discuss with your scholar.

Why Do We Lose Control of Our Emotions?

Parent Satisfaction Survey

ALL parents are encouraged to share feedback by completing the Parent Satisfaction Survey. The survey is open Jan. 13 through Feb. 18. The results from the survey help us with goal-setting and campus improvement. You can find the survey here. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019-20MISDParentsurvey

Angel Account

Did you know you can donate money to a campus cafeteria Angel Account? Donations to this account help pay for standard meals when a student reaches the district charge limit. Cash or check donations can be sent to the cafeteria in an envelope marked Angel Account. Credit card donation can be made online at www. MySchoolBulcks.com using the Café Angel Account Donation button.

Volunteer/Chaperone Requirements

If you foresee that you will do any volunteering on campus or attend a field trip as a chaperone, you must complete a background check. This is a requirement in MISD. A background check must be completed EVERY YEAR. A completed check will apply to all MISD schools, but it is very helpful if you choose Willie Brown Academy when you apply. If you have not completed a background check for this school year (beginning July 1), you will not be able to volunteer or attend a field trip. https://www.mansfieldisd.org/parents-students/campus-volunteers
