Park Elementary is about to embark on a journey of perseverance, and we are hoping you will join us on the ride. At Park, we want all students to understand that perseverance equals effort, and effort equals achievement. Teachers are discussing what perseverance is, ways to persevere, and the benefits of struggling. We want students to learn the idea that you can succeed by increasing effort and we celebrate and acknowledge even the smallest steps towards success. Teachers tell students how proud we are that they didn’t give up and we celebrate when students struggle and keep going. We believe that perseverance is a necessary skill for discovering new ideas, experiencing setbacks and failures, and allows us to take risks, and forge ahead with new and better information.
