NFV Schools Monthly Newsletter for November
This is New!
Last month, I shared my District Financial report with the school board and SIAC committee via this platform. The link to that report is:
NFV Financial Report FY18
If you want to present some feedback, there is a survey at the bottom of the Financial report to do just that.
As we edge into November there are a few items of interest to be discussed this winter. First of those is the formation of the new NFV Facilities Committee. In the past 5 years, NF and Valley had their own facilities committees touring buildings, reviewing plans, and setting priorities for our buildings and grounds. Many of the current improvements have come through those groups. There are several potential projects on the waiting list for which we will need public input. I'd like to put together a combined Facilities Committee from volunteers of all communities. We will set up meetings in all of our buildings to look at each one's condition. We will also study finances of our PPEL and SAVE funds, discuss needs of each building's needs and brainstorm ideas for future projects. Anyone who is interested please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Susan Winter in my office, and we will begin to develop a schedule for some of these meetings.
Growth Mindset Speaker
This is an analogy to our students' lives. Those that do not challenge themselves, never compete for a position or strive for that "A" paper because its hard work. They become Zoo Tigers because they don't believe they can do any better. Students who put themselves out there, competing, setting high goals and working hard to achieve them is called Jungle Tigering. Their mindset is towards Growth, they know they can grow and get smarter, faster, stronger. The Zoo Tigers walk around with a Fixed Mindset, can't get better, don't want to try, not going to work at anything, because they don't believe they can.
Students need to struggle, thats how they learn. We don't want to send Zoo TigerHawks out into the world, we want them to be ENGAGED in their work and communities. Working with and for others with a variety of skills both for work and for life, WELL ROUNDED. Jungle TigerHawks will be IMPACTING THE FUTURE.
