Principal’s Message

Tomorrow, March 1st, is the mid-quarter point of the third quarter. It is a great time to ask your child about what they are learning about in each subject and how well they are doing. If your child is in grades 6 – 12, ask them to show you their Schoology accounts, and ask for them to show you their grades in each subject. If you would like to sign into your parent account for Schoology and do not know how to, please email Mr. Reynolds: treynolds@sharonsprings.org.


Student Focus

Dear Families,

This week our school community focused on the character strength of Love of Learning. Love of learning means you master new topics on your own or in school.

Those with a love of learning are intrinsically motivated and engaged in a topic regardless of achieving an external standard. They enjoy learning simply for the sake of learning. They don’t need a prize of a high grade as a reward. Their reward is the process of doing the work and improving.

Developing a love of learning is highly beneficial for an individual. It means that they are intrinsically motivated to deepen their existing skills and abilities, or learn something completely new. Since intrinsically motivated action is correlated with positive emotions, those who act on their love of learning may also have enhanced mental and physical health. Additionally, individuals who love learning have the desire and ability to overcome challenges, due to a sense of autonomy and control over their environment.

To practice and encourage the character strength of love of learning with your child, please share with your child what you love to learn about and explain how you leverage your time, energy and resources to learn more about this topic!

Have a wonderful weekend!
