Hello Montclair Families,

We had another great week of school and thank you to all who came to our Back to School Night this week!

Below is a letter from The NED Show:
As you know we recently hosted an all school event called NED’s Mindset Mission. We trust your student was encouraged by the show which taught about having a positive Mindset for learning and life!

Mindset Mission yoyos are still available for purchase to support the free show and message. If your student has already purchased a yoyo, here is an important link to help them get off to a good start with proper string length adjustment, click here.

Additionally, here are a couple of our favorite follow up home resources from the Mindset Mission website. You may want to use these with your child as they are designed to go hand in hand with the program.

NED Coloring Face Masks
Parent Encouragement Notes

If you’d like additional resources, they are available here.

And don’t forget to ask your student what they learned in the show about having a growth mindset from YET the Yeti, Captain Kindly and during NED’s visit on the spaceship!

Thank you again for all your support of Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment!

With gratitude,

Mr. Daniel Barks

School Principal
