As your family adjusts to the school routine, please ensure that your children arrive to school on time and that reading is part of the daily structure. We had an assembly last week and reviewed with the students the importance of a growth mind set. Children should be reinforced for their effort and persistence to task rather than the grade earned. Developing grit is a lifelong disposition that will serve them well in the future. Studies consistently show that reinforcing effort results in students taking on more challenging work and experimenting with more academic risks.

Au plaisir,

Shaune Palmer
