Perseverance is our November Virtue of the Month. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines perseverance as “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition”. The onset of the holiday season provides a great time for all of us to display perseverance. The children also show perseverance in their continued hard work as we approach the end of the first half of the school year. At EAEE, we continue to foster perseverance in the students by using the growth mindset technique of focusing on and supporting each student’s learning process, instead of focusing solely on the end result.
