Just a reminder Students are not allowed to bring toys, and/ or items that are inappropriate or may cause distractions to the learning environment of the school. However, we would like our students to bring a growth mindset that includes having a positive mind, a willingness to learn and a love for education.
Our School Spirit Wear came in yesterday. We will deliver the Spirit Wear by Tuesday.
The final day to submit funds for the fundraiser is tomorrow Monday September 24th. Check the website for your class totals.
Here is our Growth Mindset nugget for the week. I am a firm believer in teaching students about having a growth mindset, and approach each day with the belief that all of our students are capable of learning and growth. Here are some ways you can extend and promote growth mindset in your home. Talk with your children about the following and share with them your experiences:
-Think of a time you learned something new. What steps did you take to learn it? -Think of a time you failed at something. How did it make you feel? What happened after you failed? -Think about the difference between the language in having a fixed mindset vs. a growth mindset. Ex: (Fixed Mindset) Math is not my thing. I'm not good at this. vs. (Mixed Mindset) I can grow my brain. My hard work and effort will pay off. -Everyday have your child repeat the following "Today I will: Have a good learning attitude. Be an active learner and grow my brain. Be a mindful problem solver."
I hope you’ll commit to partnering with me on this growth-mindset journey.
This week starts our seventh week of school. With that our 6-week warning notices are being sent home. If your child should receive a notice that indicates an area where your child is not meeting grade level proficiency. We have 6 weeks until the 1st semester reports cards and parent conferences. Six weeks to partner with the teacher to discuss specific strategies and support to help your child reach proficiency by the 1st grading period.
Next, Friday the 28th is School Picture Day!
Look for the Wednesday Correspondence for two important parent workshops: 1. Understanding the Magnet School System and learning how to begin the research process for Applying for Magnet Middle Schools
Just a reminder: Every Monday is Loyola Spirit Wear day, every Tuesday dismissal is 1:33pm, every Wednesday look in your child’s notebook for any School to Home Correspondence and every Friday is College Awareness Day, dress in your colleges school colors, or wear your College T-Shirts. That’s all for now. Have a Fabulous Week!
