Welcome Back Letter for 2023-24

Dear Students & Parents,

Welcome to the 23 -24 school year.  We look forward to meeting all our incoming 7th-graders and welcoming back on 8th-grade students.  We are firm believers in the power of the growth mindset and self-efficacy. We approach each year with the belief that all of our students can learn, grow, and achieve goals.

Every day, your child will be immersed in learning and growing in their strengths. Our students will be asked to take educational risks. They will be praised not only for their mental quickness or natural intelligence but for approaching the process of learning with grit and determination. And they will grow in ways they never thought possible. Because we are encouraging them to take risks, we understand they are going to make mistakes. Making and fixing mistakes is a valuable part of the growth mindset approach to learning.

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your child can achieve their highest potential. We understand that to succeed in school. Our students need support from both the home and school. As partners, we share the responsibility for each student’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning and growth mindset by:

  • Encourage your child to take risks and tackle new challenges at school and home.
  • Praising your child not for the ease with which he or she learns a concept but for the amount of effort put into learning.
  • Emphasizing perseverance and effort in curricular and extracurricular activities.

A strong partnership with you will greatly impact your child’s education. Consider joining our PTSA as that partnership is vital for our school's success.  I hope you'll commit to joining us in this year's journey. We cannot do it without your help.
