Mustangs Moments of Excellence

All the fifth graders at Madison are excited to start their last year at Madison!  Mr. Fred's class determined to get better everyday!

Good morning Madison Mustangs and welcome to your first full week of school.  Mrs. Duthler's class would like to let you know that, we will be talking about growth mindset all year long.  That's when you work really hard at something, try different ways to figure a problem out, and never give up.  Let's make this our best school year ever!

Good morning Madison Mustangs.  Mrs. Duthler's class is wondering if you enjoy watching sports?  Many of the athletes had dreams of becoming a professional athlete ever since they were young.  They developed a growth mindset when they were your age.  They persevered (which means they kept going when it got tough) and used a lot of grit.  When others told them they couldn't , they said, "Oh yes I can.  Just watch me!".  Their dreams came true.  at school, set a goal, persevere and continue to nurture a growth mindset.  Before the game begins, athletes and fans place their right hand over their heart and proudly sing along to The Star Spangled Banner.  Now imagine yourself achieving your goal and feeling that sense of pride.  Dream big and aim high!

Mrs. Locke's class would like to welcome you back after our long weekend.  In PARRT we are talking about respect and how we can show respect at school.  How do you show respect to your classmates?

The students in Mrs. Locke's class, would like to thank our PTA for Donuts for Dads.  We can't wait to see which team has the most team spirit!  Have a great day and don't forget to do your PARRT!

The fourth graders in Ms. Gerst's class are excited to start their first science unit on Living Systems!  The firs thing we will learn is what makes a system work.  Our school is like a system too because all of us are important pieces of the school that have to work together to make sure everybody is learning every day!  You matter!  When you do you PARRT and encourage others to do the same, we can all have great days!

Today we will enjoy our first Friendship Group of the year!  Ms. Gerst's class would like you to make sure you give someone a smile, say something kind, help someone if they need it, and enjoy getting to know your fellow Mustangs!  In our classroom, we try to treat everyone the way we would want to be treated.  Make this your goal today and every day!
