Back to School Safety/Traffic

The Power of “Yet”

Welcome back, DVA Eagles! I hope you have enjoyed your summer break. Did you attempt to learn a new skill, like swimming, riding a bike, or playing chess? When we try something new that is difficult, we can be tempted to give up. Guess what? Learning takes a lot of effort! DVA Eagles don’t give up when things get difficult; they persevere. Eagles take risks and understand that mistakes are normal when trying hard things. We have a growth mindset and we believe in the power of “yet”. So, instead of saying, “I can’t”, and change your mind and say, “I can’t yet”. Change your words, change your mindset!

We look forward to a great school year, DVA Eagles! Mrs. Weigel
