I know that there is a lot of talk about growth mindset…we’re talking about it Fiske too!  We really want students to know the importance of perseverance, sticking with something if it is hard, knowing you can “grow your brain” and get better at something.  This is not out of line with our school core value of effort.  It’s great to see evidence of our work, like this chart (featured image) that a first grade teacher made with her students, talking about trying harder and what you can do when you think you can’t do any more and you’re ready to give up!  I’m so grateful that our staff are working to help equip students with skills beyond academics that will help them later in life and now too! #fiskeschool #growthmindset #yesIcan #grit @fiskeschool
