Developing a Growth Mindset

I know we have a lot of soccer players in Goodrich, me included! I have attached a link to an article about growth from one of the leading experts, Dr. Carol Dweck from Stanford University. In this article she makes the link between a fixed mindset, personal grit and perseverance. It's a good read and had me doing some thinking about how I will approach conversations with myself, my children, and the people I work with.

Goodrich Martian Softball Boosters

The Goodrich Softball Program is excited to announce the beginning of The Goodrich Martian Softball Boosters. A group of parents started meeting in September 2015 and in that short time have created a mission statement, received School Board approval to be an active Booster’s club and have started the process to become a non-profit organization with 501 c3 status. Part of the mission statement…”The Goodrich Martian Softball Boosters is composed of parents, coaches and school administrators. They will support the Goodrich Area School’s Softball Program by providing communication, volunteer and financial support. They will provide communication about programs, opportunities and achievements that strengthen and unify Goodrich Area School’s Softball program and increase community interest.” They meet the 3rd Wednesday (February 17th is our February meeting) of each month at the High School Media Center. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Suzanne Taylor, 810-938-2899
