Definitely #TAcalifornia ready! 😄🎉
“As a Turnaround Arts school we’ll ask, ‘What more can we do? How can we tap into our students’ natural curiosity and encourage them to express their creative ideas?’” With such a strong growth mindset, @mpusdway’s Marina Vista Elementary is a force to be reckoned with. 👊🏽 Their teachers and staff know that all children, no matter their background, are innately curious learners.
