Thatcher Brook Primary School staff came back to school last Friday for a day filled with reconnecting, reflecting and preparing for the work ahead. We discussed our summer reading of the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success (see http://mindsetonline.com/whatisit/about/index.html for more information) and re-invigorated our shared commitment to working with our students at TBPS.
Today we engaged in training around how trauma affects children, presented by Joelle van Lent a developmental psychologist. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we all feel like we have a few more tools in our toolbox when it comes to working with children.
Tomorrow we welcome almost 400 students to the 2015-16 school year here at TBPS. We are all excited about the work ahead and the possibilities that lie before us. This Friday, August 28th there is an Ice Cream Social, sponsored by the PTO, beginning at 6:00. Our first All School Share is Friday, September 11 @ 1:45.
