Woodland Elementary School (WES)

Principal Kearnan is pleased to announce the eighth Principal’s Council recognition for this school year. WES teachers nominate students from their classes that exemplify certain values that are important to the Woodland School community. Respect, effort, inclusiveness, leadership, and helpfulness are examples of the types of prosocial, positive behaviors valued at Woodland and in the community. WES wants to recognize and celebrate students that demonstrate these behaviors consistently in class, in school, and in our community. WES hopes students that have earned and deserve this nomination will be celebrated and recognized in the community and at home.

The eighth Council of the year has been nominated by their teachers for having a Growth Mindset. Students with a Growth Mindset believe that they can achieve any goal or acquire any skill through hard work, effort, and determination. They see mistakes as an opportunity to learn and improve. They don’t believe any skill or talent is fixed or permanent - they know that everything can be improved. Their positive attitude means that if there is something they can’t do, it only means they can’t do it yet.
