Growth Mindset

Growth Mindset!

There are two mindsets that exist in each of us: a fixed mindset and a growth mindset.

Fixed Mindset: is the belief that we're born with a fixed amount of intelligence and ability. People operating in the fixed mindset are prone to avoiding challenges and failures.

Growth Mindset: is the belief that with practice, perseverance, and effort, people have limitless potential to learn and grow. People operating in the growth mindset tackle challenges with self-confidence, unconcerned with making mistakes or being embarrassed. They are focused instead on the process of growth.

At Adams we believe in teaching students about having a growth mindset. We honor mistakes, because we know that it is by those mistakes that learning takes place. When students say they can't do something we add the word YET to their sentence. We are committed to all students learning at high levels. We believe that begins with teaching them how their brain works and that with practice, perseverance, and effort they will attain their goals

Blue Ticket Winners

We feel that the students need to be taught or reminded of such things as being honest, respectful toward themselves and others, and toward their own and other’s property, saying please and thank you, being good listeners, and other similar behaviors.

Adams Elementary uses the “7 Habits” and “Prevention Dimension” curriculum. The students will be reminded of citizenship and courtesy topics. Students will receive blue slips for reinforcing desired values. Teachers will collect and turn in the blue slips to the office on a daily basis. A drawing for the school wide 200 Reward Club will take place each day.

Our First Blue Ticket Celebration was September 25, 2019
