Dear Parents,

Since the beginning of the year, Fowler teachers have focused on the Growth Mindset Model.  This is the belief that all students can make progress, grow, and improve academically, socially, and emotionally.  Most recently, teachers have explored the importance of conveying to our students (in words and actions) that we believe in them.  At the last faculty meeting, several teachers shared how students are responding positively within this belief system.

Fowler is using the following three sentences to support this work:

"You can do it."

"This is important."

"I will not give up on you."

As the collaborative partnership between Fowler and our families continues to be important in supporting our students, we encourage you to use the same language with your own children.
