Join now and BE HERD!
The Beachwood PTO is excited to present a two part lectureship series on: Finding the "AHA!": Developing a Growth Mindset with Your Child. This is a Free presentation and open to all. The presentation occurs on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 at 7 pm, in the Beachwood High School Community Room- presented by Ashley Saferight and Meghann Sullivan.
Have you ever looked at your child and wondered how to help them reach their full potential? Do you want your child to crave challenges, push themselves, and value learning to do new things? The way you interact with your children has a major impact on the way they think about themselves and perform in school and other activities. Did you know that some praise can actually hinder performance? This interactive workshop will help parents learn about the differences between a fixed mindset and growth mindset, and how to nurture a growth mindset in your child. We will use real-world examples and interactive activities so that you will walk out the door able to immediately apply what you've learned!
Please remember to save your box tops and drop them off at the elementary schools!
