Greetings,

As we begin this school year I am excited to see the students and for all of the wonderful experiences that we will have together this year.

I believe it is important for students to be creative and to use their brain in multiple ways.

Fourth-grade was the first grade-level to make a marble runs following a lesson on mindset.  Mindset is the idea that students need to have, in a sense, a positive attitude.  Instead of an I-can’t attitude, the student should have the attitude that ‘I can’t yet, but I am working on it!’  Instead of an attitude of ‘this is too hard’, we want Park Brook students to have the mindset of ‘this is going to take some effort!’  Throughout the school I want students to be stretched with their thinking, and instead of just learning from books, I want them to use their brains in multiple ways.

While I state that I want students to learn in multiple ways, I also want them to increase their academic growth in math and reading. In reading, students must be reading at home to make the growth that we expect.

Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will be setting goals in math, reading, and physical fitness standards.  The purpose of the goals is to have each student know what their goal is for the year so that they can achieve their goals, and make the progress that we desire them to make.

The reason we have physical fitness goals is because increasing fitness increase academic growth and positive behaviors.

Please feel welcome to call, email, or stop in at anytime if you have questions or concerns.
