Character Education Program

Gators don’t quit, we’ve got GRIT!

 Our Mission: To help students develop perseverance and problem solving skills (GRIT) in order to improve learning outcomes and increase long-term success.

What is GRIT?

GRIT is the ability and drive to work hard, persevere through trials and failures, and overcome hardships.

How will we help students develop GRIT?

We will help our students develop perseverance and problem solving skills by instilling a growth mindset. We will help our students believe that the ability to learn is not fixed, that it can change with effort, and failure is not permanent.

How will we instill a growth mindset and motivate students to persevere through difficult tasks?

We will accomplish this by:

       Infusing GRIT into our school culture (assemblies, posters, bulletin boards, newsletter, announcements).

       Devoting time weekly to lessons and discussions that develop GRIT’s program and growth mindset components

       Modeling GRIT in action and through deliberate mindset language.
