Tiger Tales May 2nd

Hello Colfax Family! This month we will continue talking about using a growth mindset and introduce the chart below to help guide discussions and support students. This chart is adapted from a book by Arthur L. Costa, Leading and Learning with Habits of Mind.

Thanks,

Cristina Rodriguez and Gabriela Castro
