This year in ninth grade, teachers are teaching students about the growth mindset! The growth mindset has a lot to do with grit. It’s teaching us that even if we’re bad at something now, there’s always room to grow and become better! I love this because it helps me a lot when I’m doing my homework. When I’m sick of doing homework, I just remember grit and it helps me through. We do a lot of assignments on the growth mindset. Learning to not have a fixed mindset. I love this!

Skyhawks vs. Dons

Last Friday was the Salem Skyhawks V.S. Spanish Fork Dons. It was a really good game because they're rivals so it will be a good game no matter what. At the football games the junior high kids hang out and have a really good time with one another. And all the elementary kids play football or boys chase girls and have a good time as well. There’s a snack shack that has really good food, so you don’t have to worry about that. Football games are really important to me because the whole community comes together to a good game of football. Coming into this game I thought we were going to win but… We lost 38 to 30 it was a pretty good game but we totally gave them the win. Although Skyhawks didn’t win we all came together. I love football and i especially love living in salem.
