This year, we are excited to bring back Dr. Blake Brandes, the beatboxing TEDx speaker, America’s Got Talent performer, and Marshall Scholar who has performed for more than 30,000 students, parents and educators around the world!
Dr. Blake performed for our school last year bringing our students his acclaimed first installment of the Growth Mindset series. He also provided us with 6 weekly video installments during our emergency distance learning last year. The students loved him and the message he provided!
During this fun and interactive presentation, Dr. Blake will create freestyle raps based on our students’ suggestions, as well as sharing how students can overcome challenges and achieve their dreams by choosing a Growth Mindset.
There are two sessions (5-6pm and 7-8pm on Oct. 26), and each session is limited to the first 500 attendees who join that session. Join us for our virtual Family Fun Night on Oct. 26.
Miss the actual event or just want to watch it again? A link to the recorded event will be provided in the PTA newsletter and the Grizzly Growl. The link will be available for use until Nov. 13th.
**To continue to support developing growth mindsets, Dr. Brandes has created a standards-based video curriculum for us with 11 creative and entertaining lessons to help our students continue to adapt to the challenges they’re facing. Each lesson contains a 5-10 minute video lesson, lesson plan, and grade-differentiated activities. Your student’s teachers will be providing this great curriculum throughout the school year!**
