7 Mindsets Initiative Everything is Possible

Dear Parents,

As you know, our school day includes a built-in advisement time-frame each day called “Chieftain Chat.” During this time on Wednesdays, we will continue implementation of the DRMS initiative of 7 Mindsets.

We hope you, as parents, will begin/continue to hear about these Mindsets from your students and will see this as an opportunity to encourage and support the 7 Mindsets initiative. Although academics are extremely important, the 7 Mindsets focuses on students’ social-emotional learning and will tap into your students’ unlimited life potential. Here at DRMS, we believe that each student has the potential for greatness in their life. As a staff, we want our focus on the 7 Mindsets to have a positive impact on our school as a whole and each student individually.

Attached you will find an introductory document describing the initiative and the 7 Mindsets. This information may provide a platform for family discussions concerning all aspects of school life. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s grade-level counselor. As always, we appreciate your partnership and support of Dean Rusk Middle School.

Thank you,

Ms. Weinbaum, Principal
