THE POWER OF YET!
Growth Mindset for Math:
This video highlights the fixed mindset culture in math and explains why having a growth mindset may be particularly important in this subject.
Many students have negative experiences in math, often due to the pervasive myth that math ability is innate. This myth can cause students to interpret challenging work as a sign that they aren’t smart enough and, over time, can lead students to give up or become anxious in math. When students believe that math ability can be developed, they welcome challenges and see them as opportunities to learn.
Field Day, Sunsplash, and Six Flags:
K-5th GRADERS will be meeting at Kathy Lund Park for our annual Field Day from 8:10-noon. Please drop your children off at the park no earlier than 8am and pick up is at noon. Our awesome Field Day committee has been working incredibly hard to make sure the day is fun and safe for everyone. This is where you come in. It takes about 48 volunteers to run Field Day. Please check out the Sign-up Genius link and come and spend a couple of hours with us at the park!
6th-7th GRADERS will be meeting at Sunsplash at 10am and will be picked up 2:30pm. For more information or questions, please contact Mrs. Allen.
8th GRADERS will be going to Six Flags. For more information or questions, please contact Ms. O'Neill.
The spring school pictures are up on my website and available for purchase. I am so thrilled with how they all turned out and I hope you love them too. I have a variety of package choices set up under the “Buy Photos” button in the top right corner, but you can also purchase single items and make your own package. All ordering is done online, and you will have the photos shipped directly to your home. The gallery is unlisted on my website, so you MUST have the link in order to find it and view the photos. The link is attached HERE.
What a fun week on the playground! We had cardboard creations and 2 goats! A special thank you to the Soto family for bringing in their pet goats and to our AWESOME aides for thinking of such fun activities!

Our sixth grade students got to visit Yosemite National Park where they spent the days hiking and learning about the park and the evenings in front of campfires with good friends.
Tell Your Assembly Member Why You Oppose AB 1478!
AB 1478 (Jones-Sawyer) will be heard on the Assembly Floor next week. We need your help! This bill would impose undue financial hardship on your charter school by removing critical financial tools that allow charters to keep their doors open and result in potential criminal penalties and prosecution of dedicated volunteer charter school board members.
Click here to send an email to your Assembly Member opposing AB 1478, it only takes a minute!
If you have an extra three minutes, please click here make a quick phone call to your Assembly Member’s office. Phone calls from constituents have the most impact on legislators!
Thank you for advocating on behalf of kids in California!

Then, you can look at sample homework, video taped lessons, and other resources. This resource comes from Oakdale Joint Unified School District. Click HERE to utilize this awesome site!
