2G Families,

As a class, we have spent the first few weeks working on two important themes, Choose Kind and Positive Growth Mindset. Choose Kind is our school theme and comes to us from the book, We're All Wonders, by R.J. Palacio. Students have been discussing and writing about what kindness looks like, feels like and sounds like. We've also been finding the wonders in ourselves and classmates.

GRIT is an acronym that was introduced as part of Positive Gowth Mindset. I want all students to see that they can succeed, even when failures occur.

  • Give it your all
  • Redo if necessary
