|Mr. Wink's Secondary Student Leader of the|
Week is Avry Collinsworth.
As you visit with your children this week, push them to not allow excuses to prevent them reaching their +10 Goals. Eliminate excuses like "I'm not a good reader", "I'll never learn math", "I can't write", and "I'm not good at this sport". These excuses are nothing more than a lie. They are just frustrations that we can overcome if we push ourselves to continuously get better.
Formative Assessment Week
This past week, your student took one or more 6 week
|Congratulations to our BRHS Tiger Football Team.|
They clinched a birth in the playoffs in their first year
in 3A competition.
In dealing with growth, each student has a +10 goal. The goal is used to gauge student growth from last year's STAAR test and/or from the 1st six weeks assessment. When you visit with your child about his/her performance on the 2nd 6 weeks assessment, ask these questions.
|Great job to all the FFA kids that competed|
last week at the Tarleton LDE Invitational competition!
Great conversations with students about their learning are necessary to motivate them to continue to try harder. I hope you will take a few minutes to talk to your child about their growth on the 2nd 6 weeks assessment. It will definitely keep them focused on reaching all of their +10 goals this year.
