How to Develop a Greater Sense of Motivation in Students is a great article that emphasizes the importance of building healthy motivation without the use of tangible rewards and incentives. As teachers, we are always striving to instill in our students a growth mindset – “the belief that we can change and improve through practice, and that our talents and skills aren’t fixed.” As you read this article, think about the variety of approaches you use at home to motivate your child.
Sue Waters (Edublog support) informed us on Friday that the Edublog mail server has been down. We’ve had a frustrating start to our blogs this year, but hopefully those issues will now be resolved. In the meantime, you may receive an email from your child’s teacher in lieu of a post. Thanks for your patience!
Our 8th graders will be selling frozen treats ($2) every Friday in September to raise money for graduation. Treats are sold outside, in front of the school office.
