Isn't it crazy to think just a few short weeks ago the entire town of Claremore was covered in snow? Raelynn Lamb and Elsa sure had some fun times together! Sometimes Mother Nature makes us slow down and appreciate each other and the time we have together. I know Mrs. Kellie James, Raelynn's grandmother, sure loved spending time with Raelynn and capturing these pictures! Now that the weather is warming up, take some time to appreciate the outdoors! Sit in the sun and read a good book. Get out the sidewalk chalk. Go for a walk. #enjoy #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

A wonderful gentleman who lives in our Westside neighborhood has brought some donuts which we placed in the workroom. He is a Vietnam veteran and shared a bit of his story with us. He had some wonderful teachers that invested time and helped direct his path which led to serving his country during war time and then going on to college and obtaining a degree. He was the first member of his family to graduate both HS and college. He has been subbing at the Jr. high and high school. He follows us on our FB page and prays for us daily. His name is Don McGuire. Thank you Mr. McGuire for both your service to our country and kindness to our Westside teachers! Both are appreciated so much! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Introducing... Mrs. Debra Bonham GT Teacher Thank you for your dedication to Westside! __________________________________________________ This is my 39th year of teaching, all in Claremore. I have taught 3rd-6th grades. This is my 15th year in GT. I went to college at NEO A&M and Bartlesville Wesleyan. I have been married for almost 39 years and have four children and seven grandchildren. Teaching GT is still as exciting for me now, as the day I began. There is always something new to explore, and I absolutely love getting to facilitate the learning that takes place in those brilliant minds! My classes have three character traits we strive to live up to each year. They are Esprit de Corps, compassion, and service. We work as a team to support each other and look for ways to help others see the good in themselves. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and gardening. I am blessed to be a part of the zebra family! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

What Is a Growth Mindset? Some individuals acquire skills and knowledge effortlessly, some are more orderly and achievement-focused than are their peers, and others exhibit unusual talents. While such positive traits are not evenly distributed, they are not necessarily out of reach for those who are not "natural" high achievers. A growth mindset, as conceived by psychologist Carol Dweck and colleagues, is the belief that a person's capacities and talents can be improved over time. A growth mindset contrasts with a fixed mindset—the limiting belief that such capacities cannot be meaningfully developed. Proponents of the theory contend that adopting a growth mindset, and rejecting a limited mindset, can make students and others more likely to succeed. They propose that individuals with a growth mindset will be more oriented toward self-improvement and more likely to persist in the face of challenges and failures because they will treat them as opportunities to grow rather than signs that their abilities are inadequate. In mindset studies, participants are considered to have more of a growth mindset if they disagree with statements such as “You have a certain amount of intelligence, and you really can’t do much to change it,” and to have more of a limited mindset if they agree. What's great about growth mindset? Growth Mindset has several beneficial statistics. To highlight just a few, growth mindset has been associated with: *Seeking out better feedback and persisting for longer. *Coping better with transitions . *Improved self-regulation . *Choose more challenging task. *Most beneficial for disengaged students . *Reduces stress and aggression . *Increases wellbeing. *Improved self-esteem, learning orientation and reduce helplessness. As well as that, there is evidence from schools emerging that growth mindset is associated with grit and prosocial behaviors . I think all teachers would agree that these are exactly the sort of behaviors and skills we would want to help our students develop. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
