    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 persevere in the face of challenges.

    PRHS Student Making a Difference


    Inspired by a tweet sent out by the University of Houston's men's basketball coach Kelvin Sampson, Pelican Rapids High School student Kaylie Isaman was inspired to help make a difference in the lives of those struck by Hurricane Harvey.


    Coach Sampson, knowing that most sports programs accumulate many extra t-shirts and shoes, asked coaches to send him 20 t-shirts and 10 pairs of shoes that they may have "laying around". The response has been almost overwhelming as schools across the nation did much more than just send 20 shirts and a few pair of shoes. Shipments have been arriving daily and boxes upon boxes have been piling up at the University of Houston for distribution to storm stricken areas.


    Kaylie's effort involved going to the coaches at PRHS and asking them to donate what they could to the cause. The result was a box of more than 40 T-shirts that have been packaged and sent down to the University of Houston. "I just thought it was an easy way for me to help those that were devastated by all the flooding" commented Isaman.
