Parent Survey

 

 

surveyAs we begin to wind down our 2013-2014 school year, it is time again for our annual parent survey.  This survey only takes about 5 – 10 minutes to complete and provides valuable feedback for next year’s planning.  Your answers are read and your voice does matter!  Last year approximately 60 people completed the survey.  Considering we have over 450 families at BHE, we would love for this number to increase dramatically.

Please consider taking the time to give your feedback.

Understanding Growth Mindset Parent Session

Fixed_or_Growth_Mindset

Understanding Growth Mindset Parent Session

“Every so often a truly groundbreaking idea comes along. This is one. Mindset explains:

  • Why brains and talent don’t bring success
  • How they can stand in the way of it
  • Why praising brains and talent doesn’t foster self-esteem and accomplishment, but jeopardizes them
  • How teaching a simple idea about the brain raises grades and productivity
  • What all great CEOs, parents, teachers, athletes know

 

Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference.

 

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.

Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships.” (from www.mindsetonline.com)

Join Dr. Hernandez in an introductory discussion about growth mindset and how we, as educators and parents, can positively and effectively affect our children’s love of learning.  This 1 hour session will give you a basic understanding of the findings by Carol Dweck and strategies and can be used immediately.  Some pre-reading and video assignments will be given to help you be prepared to jump into the discussion and learning.

The session will be held Tuesday, April 15th, from 9:00-10:00 AM in the Community Center.

To RSVP and receive the pre-assignments, please sign up at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0B48AEA62EABF49-understanding.
