Happy Spring! I sure hope all of you enjoyed your Spring Break and are ready to come back to finish the school year out strong!

During April and the first part of May we have testing! This can be an exhausting and overwhelming time for students!

We recognize that this added stress can be hard on students, so we will be implementing various different things to ensure that our students show grit and motivation!

Some of the things we are encouraging our students to do is display a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset!

An individual  with a fixed mindset often thinks that they cannot increase their skill and knowledge in a certain area, whereas, an individual with a growth mindset believes that they can learn anything as long as they put in the work, practice, and effort.  

Comments that they make with a growth mindset and a fixed mindset are listed below.

We want our students to have a growth mindset during testing time! Thoughts and words have a powerful influence on our capabilities!

We will be encouraging students to use positive self talk skills along with an optimistic attitude during this next month!

Parents can support this by having a positive or “pump up” conversation with their student before dropping them off at school or in the morning before they come to school!

Let’s get to spreading positivity and successful testing! :) Thank you for  your constant support!!

If you have any questions about how I can help your child succeed or for other information in regards to my program, please feel free to contact me.
