Principal's Weekly Message - April 3, 2017
Hello Spring Brook Parents –
Plunge into Fitness
This year's Plunge into Fitness is winding down. Completed fitness logs are due back to classroom teachers by Tuesday, April 11. Late fitness logs will not be accepted past Thursday, April 13. All students who complete and turn in their fitness logs will receive a free weekday ticket to Raging Waves for the summer season. Any activity that increases the heart rate counts towards counts toward the total. Extra fitness logs are available in the gym.
On Tuesday, March 21st, the Parent Diversity Advisory Council (PDAC) hosted a meeting titled: What Makes A Great Parent? Teacher? based on chapters 6 & 7 of Carol Dweck’s book, Mindset. We enjoyed video clips and discussions on fostering growth mindsets. Meeting presentation can be found HERE and conversation starters with children HERE. For more information, please visit the PDAC subpage.
