  • BGMS is a Gold Ribbon School!
    The California Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to have a program focused on honoring schools while the California Distinguished Schools Program is on hiatus during the period of time required for California to transition to new assessment and accountability systems. The new award will recognize middle and high schools in 2015 and elementary schools in 2016.

    The focus of the California Gold Ribbon Schools Award will be to recognize California schools that have made tremendous gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education for all students, including English learners. These include, but are not limited to, the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, California English Language Development Standards, Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and Next Generation Science Standards.

    Congratulations to Baechtel Grove Middle School for earning such a prestigious honor!

    Week 17

    You might have read about a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset. When mentioned in a math context, the common question is: Can everyone learn math or are some people “just good at it”? Recent research shows that a student with a growth mindset is a flexible learner. Even students who don’t appear to have strong skills in an area can become very proficient if they can develop a growth mindset towards a topic. A student with a growth mindset (GM) will take on challenges, learn from mistakes, accept feedback and criticism, practice and apply strategies to accomplish goals, persevere, ask questions, and take risks. As a result, they reach ever-higher levels of achievement. A student with a fixed mindset (FM) won’t. The FM learner thinks that our character, intelligence, and creative ability can’t be changed in any meaningful way. As a result, the FM learner may plateau early and achieve less than their full potential. There is a mixed mindset where a student is working from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. Observe your child to see what mindset characteristics he or she exhibits. For more information about this, go towww.mindsetworks.com. Carol Dweck, a professor at Stanford University, says that we are in charge of our own growth. We can change our mindset and reach our potential. Another source of information about growth mindset can be found at Carol Dweck - Mindset
