ANOTHER YEAR IN THE BOOKS!
Superintendent Wayne Weber
Another year is gone by and once again I find myself surprised at how quickly the time has passed. As I look back on the year I am proud of the work our teachers and support staff have done helping our students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Hopefully, our students continue that growth this summer by finding the right mix of fun, family time, friends and a little studying to reinforce skills learned throughout the year. Any time our children spend outside of school involved in reading, writing, math, and any form of hands-on learning will only help them continue that academic growth. As parents, we are our children’s first teachers. The more we model for our children, the easier it is for them to establish good habits. (I know…easier said than done!) If it’s any consolation to our students, please know that our staff will be mixing academic learning into their summers as well.
Raising Caring Kids: Keep Calm and Carry On to Success
You may have heard the phrase, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Current research on learning points to the truth of this old saying. In fact, you can help children “try again” by saying, “Let’s talk about what you tried and what you can try next time.” You can also support a child’s growth when you praise the steps they take to learn something new. This is called a growth mindset. Learn more about how to support growth mindset.
