  • Stay Gold Senior Scholarship 05/12/2020

    Posted by Mr. Larry King on 5/12/2020

    This grading practice and philosophy is in alignment with our recently Board-adopted strategic plan, The Gold Standard. Specifically,  “A safe and respectful environment is essential to student success. We foster a culture that promotes the emotional health, safety, and well-being of students, staff, and parents (Gold Standard 4.0).”  

    The guiding principle for developing the recommended policy in the Board Agenda is based on equity for all students.  Please refer to the Board Agenda for Thursday, May 14, 2020, item 9a.  

    Our seniors were offered the opportunity to apply for five scholarships, each worth $500.  I am proud to announce our 5 recipients who will each be receiving a $500 scholarship:

     

    • Sean Ho (Ben) Lee
    • Caroline Fox
    • Jolene Wessel
    • Arturo Portillo
    • Kacy Arguelles

     

    Mr. Brockway will again be recognizing and celebrating our awardees in the near future.  Congratulations to all of our winners.  

    I appreciate your patience.  In order to ensure our grading policy was in alignment with County and State parameters, we needed time.  We needed time to understand the parameters and options, time to establish a policy that fit our District's needs, and time to meet with the Acton Agua Dulce Teachers’ Association.  Thank you for helping us get through this challenging time.

    This week, May 4 - 8, is staff appreciation week. During the past 2 years, we’ve had BBQs, delivered food to sites, bought business cards for all of our employees, and done our best to recognize them for all they do for our students. This year was a challenge given the current situation. I have sat in on several video conference platform classrooms this week. I have sat in on leadership class, performing arts, and chemistry. Please join me this week in sharing your gratitude for our teachers. Is there a teacher who comes to mind when you think of someone who had a positive impact on your life?

    I had several teachers, but one of my favorites was Mr. Ted Snyder. He was a math teacher who has long since retired. I was struggling in math and Mr. Snyder made the material fun, easy to understand, and engaging. It was partly because of him that I later became a math teacher.

    Then there was Tom. Tom wasn’t a classroom teacher. Tom was a bus driver. I remember seeing Tom every morning as I got on the bus. He always had a smile and made me laugh. Is there a custodian, bus driver, secretary, office clerk, instructional aide, or other non-teaching employee that makes a difference in your life?

    Please take some time to say thank you to a staff member. Is there someone who made a difference in your life? Or is there someone currently making a difference in the lives of your students? Think about writing a note, recording a video message, or sending a text to that person.

    On behalf of Board President, Mr. Pfalzgraf, and all of our Board Trustees, we are thankful to have such a dedicated staff. By executive order of the state governor, Gavin Newsom, school employees are considered an essential service. Our employees are not only essential, but they are committed and present. Thank you for your time and have a good evening. #aadusdstaygold #actonschooldistrict #aadusd #gohawks #gomeadowlarks #gomustangs #firesidechat #staffappreciationweek

  • Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset'

    Posted by Yolanda McCauley on 11/1/2017

    Starry Night by Sean Parker

    Today, we'd like to share something a little different. This is an article that we at Acton-Agua Dulce USD found truly inspiring and we believe you will too! We hope you enjoy the read, and we thank Education Week for producing such fantastic content!

    Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset' - Education Week
    By Carol Dweck

    "For many years, I secretly worked on my research. I say “secretly” because, once upon a time, researchers simply published their research in professional journals—and there it stayed.

    However, my colleagues and I learned things we thought people needed to know. We found that students’ mindsets—how they perceive their abilities—played a key role in their motivation and achievement, and we found that if we changed students’ mindsets, we could boost their achievement. More precisely, students who believed their intelligence could be developed (a growth mindset) outperformed those who believed their intelligence was fixed (a fixed mindset). And when students learned through a structured program that they could “grow their brains” and increase their intellectual abilities, they did better. Finally, we found that having children focus on the process that leads to learning (like hard work or trying new strategies) could foster a growth mindset and its benefits."
