poster description
Parkwood Elementary is a K -5 International Habits of Mind Learning Community of Excellence. Since embedding the habits, our school has raised student achievement from a D school with no growth to a C school exceeding growth. We are in our third year of implementation. By incorporating the habits of mind in our daily instruction and in all aspects of our school community, we are preparing students to be college and career ready as early as kindergarten. This poster session will highlight the activities at our school and demonstrate the power of utilizing dispositions to improve school climate and student achievement.
