Growth Mindset Creative Corner
Power of Yet: School Wide Project
Please take 15 min to show the video below and do our school-wide Growth Mindset project!
Reading of The Magical Yet
Tier 1 Practice
One of the strategies of helping a child in an escalated state is a calming break. We have committed to having Calm Corners in each class and common area as a Tier 1 school-wide practice. Calm Corners provide a safe, predictable space to de-escalate, while remaining in the classroom. Please note the pinwheel has been removed due to Covid related safety protocols.
