Growth mindset involves many important life skills for students.  It helps them have a positive attitude, do their best on schoolwork, and show perseverance when tasks or situations are difficult.  Students are reminded of this concept though one of our school Goals for Life:  I can do things even if I don’t want to or if it’s hard.  Teachers encourage and reinforce the skills needed to build resiliency and persistence in students.  Our school counselor, Mrs. Petersen, teaches a Growth Mindset unit to all grade levels during weekly Anchor Time lessons.   

West Park recently hosted a virtual assembly, The NED Show Mindset Mission.  The assembly introduces a cartoon boy named NED who is on a very important mission: to find his mindset. Led by clues and memorable characters, he overcomes Mt. Everest’s toughest obstacles, uncovers inner treasures on a Caribbean island, and grows his brain while repairing a sputtering spaceship. Throughout the performance, our students discovered how to activate their growth mindset to overcome social, emotional and academic challenges.
