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.
- There is a half day on April 13th. Silvia students will be dismissed at 11:30. Parent-Teacher conferences will take place from 12:30 - 5:30 on that day. Please be on the lookout for a blue flier sent home with your child about signing up to meet with their teacher.
- The nurse needs new underwear as well as gently used and clean pants and shirts for students from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. Often times, students who have spills or accidents use the clothing at the office.
