Welcome to Skipcha Elementary, home of the Shining Stars. We look forward to meeting and getting to know your families and working with your children. We love looking at their little faces and watching their minds grapple with and eventually master new learning.
At Skipcha, we focus on a creating a mindset where growth is celebrated. Did you know that research suggests people learn best when they have a productive struggle with new learning? 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 do it. This is how we help children learn at Skipcha. The curriculum is challenging, but we are here to support the children as they contend with the new learning. Our teachers provide lessons requiring students to think and we expect them to provide evidence to support their responses. As you probably know, 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!
We look forward to collaborating with you as we prepare your child for the future!
