Mindset Message


 Carol Dweck, author of Mindset, offers the following advice:  ” If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning.  That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.”


It Takes a Village


During these extra cold days please remember that we have a selection of NEW coats, hats and mittens in the MMS school store available for students who do not have winter clothing. If you have or notice a student without a jacket, please see Mr. Steele, Ms. Haugh or Mr. Gunning during the day or Mrs. O’Brien in the morning or afternoon in the cafeteria.
