"It is important for parents, educators, and coaches to know that the growth mindset that sits in their heads may not get through to children unless they use learning-focused practices, like discussing what their children could learn from a failure and how they might improve in the future," says Haimovitz.

On June 7th the 5th grade took the last leg of our journey to save the Monarchs. This journey began in October. We received grants for milkweed, we planted milkweed to get the garden ready for our butterflies, we became a “waystation” on the National Registry for Monarch butterflies and we raised our own Monarch butterflies in the classroom. We released those butterflies today. We started our ceremony in the gym and then moved to the garden. When we let the butterflies out of their cages, they stayed with us for a very long time hopping from student to student as if they were thanking us for taking care of them. And then, suddenly, within the blink of an eye, they took flight. Their shimmering beauty and graceful flight was a wonder to us all. Butterflies symbolize new beginnings. What better way to celebrate our readiness for middle school. Releasing our Monarchs was a magical experience.
