• Mindset Matters...

    Fixed VS. Growth Mindset:

     

    Encouraging children to have a growth mindset is very important. Children with fixed mindsets tend to ignore feedback, whereas children with growth mindsets tend to learn from feedback.

     

    What can you do to help? Encourage Failure! Your child needs to know that failure can and does happen. And that is okay! Remind your child that each time he/she fails and tries again, his/her brain is growing stronger! Don’t try to stop or prevent failure- this is how children learn to preserver in the face of challenges.

  • The BOX TOPS for EDUCATION collection is on!

     

    PreK -6 grade students and their families are encouraged to collect those adorable little BOX TOPS for EDUCATION stamps to help purchase new climbing equipment and pay for installation costs for the BIG PLAYGROUND area at Viking Elementary School.

     

    BOX TOPS for EDUCATION coordinator, Ruth Holmgren, has always said that the mission statement of the BOX TOPS for EDUCATION program is that the money raised supports all grade level student needs. Hence, awesome climbing play equipment for our students.

     

    With great administrative support of Viking Elmentary principal, Dr. Ed Richardson and the Viking Elmentary Playground Team, our new Viking Elementary WIG (Wildly Important Goal) will be to raise $10,000.00 by Friday, May 19, 2017 for new climbing playground equipment and its installation.
