SRES Updates

  • Principal's Post:  Perseverance - Continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties.  Perseverance is a learner characteristic that is extremely important.  At Springs Ranch, we have been having a lot of conversations about being in a "learning pit" when you don't understand something and how good it feels to get "out of the pit" when you learn something new.  One key to getting out of the pit is perseverance.  When our kids put forth effort and keep at it, their learning increases.  Being in "the pit" is not a bad thing.  It may be hard, but it is not bad and it is an opportunity to persevere and grow.  Please help us in enouraging our students to always put forth their best effort and persevere in school, famiy and life.
