March 2022

During the month of March, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate perseverance. We will focus on having a growth mindset, engaging in positive self-talk, and practicing grit - the ability to persevere through tough situations. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!

Perseverance: the ability to work through situations even when there are obstacles or challenges in the way.

Think About It

Here are some questions to ask your child at home or talk about as a family:

K-2 Think about the story, “The Tortoise and the Hare” - how did the turtle show perseverance? Why do you think it’s important to keep on going, even when things get hard? What’s a challenge for you right now? What’s the hardest part? What are some resources – people, strategies, tools, inspiration – that could help you? What’s one step we can take together to overcome this challenge?

3-5 How did sticking to something show Perseverance? When have you decided not to stick with something? What happened? What did you learn? How, if at all, might you do that differently? What do you think the expression, “Go slow to go fast” means? How could you apply it to the last project you did?

Students who ride bikes need to bring a lock to lock them up on the bike rack

It's getting to be that time of year when lawns are taken care of again. We also need to keep a clear path for fire safety. We need all bikes to be kept on the bike rack out front every day. Please send a lock to school with your student so that they are kept secure.
