Silvia School Focus:                 Developing a Growth Mindset

This year, the Silvia school staff has been working to develop a better understanding of growth mindset versus fixed mindset, and how we can foster a growth mindset with our students. We have participated in professional development designed to enhance this work, and teachers have created lessons to encourage students to embody this thinking. Children who are praised for their effort and learning are more likely to persevere through challenges than those who are praised for their personal qualities or innate ability

Silvia School Focus:                Science, Technology, Engineering & Math

At the Silvia School, students participate in STEM classes to further their learning in science. Our teachers have been working on revamping the science curriculum so that it meets the current NGSS standards that have been in place in January. Kindergarteners have been learning about solids, liquids, and gases and the way in which a mixture changes depending on the temperature. The students made ice cream to demonstrate how easily and delicious things can be. First grade students having been investigating light and sound and developing their scientific vocabulary on how light moves.
