My name is Lisa Mandia and I am the School Counselor at Broad Street Elementary School!
This is my fourth year in the Mechanicsburg Area School District, and I am very excited to be a member of the Wildcat community.
Celebrations Around the World
In years past, we have taken the time to celebrate different traditions and diverse cultures through our Celebrations Around the World. This year each grade level is going to participate in different ways, from morning meetings with read alouds to fun crafts and activities, each class will be taking their own approach to supporting students in developing their knowledge and understanding about different traditions. Some of the holidays we have showcased in the past included Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Christmas in Mexico, and Chinese New Year. Check out EPIC for more resources on different celebrations!
November - NED's Mindset Mission Assembly
Mindset Mission yo-yos are still available for purchase at school to support the free show and message. If your student has already purchased a yo-yo, here is a video to help them get off to a good start with proper string length adjustment https://www.thenedshows.com/string-adjusting
Additionally, there are resources from the Mindset Mission website that you can use at home. Below are the Parent Encouragement Notes If you'd like additional resources, they are available on the website http://www.mindsetmission.com/parents.html
Don’t forget to ask your student what they learned in the show about having a growth mindset from YET the Yeti, Captain Kindly and during NED’s visit on the spaceship!
