Week of September 12

The +10 Mindset
We are completing the first 3 weeks of school, and wow, have they been fast.  This week, I would like to encourage you to take time to visit with your children about how the first 3 weeks have gone.  Here are a few questions you can ask them.

  • Which class is your favorite class and why?
  • Which class is a struggle for you and what makes it hard for you?
  • Who are you sitting with at lunch and what do you all talk about?
  • Are you having any problems with any students and if so, what are they?
  • What do you hope to accomplish in the next 3 weeks?
  • How can I help you do better in school?
Asking these starter questions can lead to some great conversations with your students.  Through these talks you can educate your kids on how to solve problems, how to persevere in tough times, and how to ask for help when needed.  The key to growth is not running from difficulties but pushing through them and learning from them.  A good conversation with words of acceptance and reassurance are exactly what every kid deserves to continue their pursuit for excellence.
