Dear West Hills School Community,
We have officially reached the half-way point of the school year! With this milestone, we will be publishing report cards for all grade levels at the end of next week. As a school, we believe in a growth mindset, and I would encourage you to use this update as a means to foster conversations focused on the process of learning. We all learn at different rates, but if we continue to put forth the consistent effort necessary, we can all grow as learners. With this in mind, I am including a link to one of my favorite Ted Talks by Carol Dwek who discusses The Power of Yet. I hope you enjoy the video, and we as teachers and families can incorporate her guidance into our conversations with our children.
Additionally, I would like to give a shout out to our West Hills PTO who once again supported our 4 /5 students with a movie afternoon today. We had an outstanding turnout, and it was fun to see kids enjoying time together on this rainy day. Special thanks to Lauren Canner for organizing today's event!
Finally, I would encourage you to see the article highlighting an upcoming visit to West Hills by Superintendent Watson. If your child is interested in hosting Mr. Watson as a guest of West Hills, please fill out the form to ensure your child is entered into the drawing!
