Welcome to the new school year at Skipcha, home of the Shining Stars. We are looking forward to meeting your families and working with your children. We love looking at their little faces and watching their minds grapple and eventually master new learning.
At Skipcha, we focus on a growth mindset, where growth is celebrated. Did you know that research suggests people learn best when they have a productive struggle? Can you think of a time when you were learning how to do something new and it was a little difficult? With some guidance and help, you learned how to accomplish the task. This is how we help your child to learn. The curriculum is challenging, but we are here to support the children as they contend with new learning. Our teachers provide lessons that require students to think and provide evidence to support their responses. After all, we are preparing students for jobs that may not even exist yet. When your child comes home and talks about hard tasks, the best advice you can give them is: Keep trying. You haven’t learned it yet, but you will. Everything is difficult before it is easy!
There are some new faces in the office. Because of this, We thought it would be a good idea to introduce you to the administrators who are working with your children. We look forward to collaborating with the Skipcha community, teachers and you as we help prepare your child for the future!
