This past SIP day, students at Rolling Acres participated in a rotating schedule of three different activities promoting Growth Mindset and Social Emotional Learning. In the two sessions geared towards Growth Mindset, students were engaged in activities sharing the importance of having a Growth Mindset and how perseverance will lead to success. In their third session, students participated in a variety of team building activities, working towards common goals through cooperation and collaboration. After a morning of community-building and shared learning opportunities, the students participated in an all-school assembly recognizing various student achievements at Rolling Acres. It was a wonderful morning spent building community and celebrating the accomplishments of students at Rolling Acres, where it is always a GREAT day to be a Cougar!
