Hello AIG Families,

Welcome to another exciting year at Carolina Forest International Elementary.

Sorry for our delay in the letter, but we were waiting for all of our students to receive their laptops.

Most of my groups have logged in to Office 365, opened and connected their content to our AIG OneNote Notebook.  All of our class work is in the notebook.  Additionally, our Notebook is available for you to see on your child’s laptop or yours at home.  Your child should have their sign-in and passwords available for you to see what we are working on throughout the year.


The link below should take you to your child's sign-in page.     


Their login is their lunch number;


This year our focus is to promote a Growth mindset. Throughout our studies, we will focus on the process your child takes to achieve set outcomes. This is to help them connect their successes to the strategies and steps they take to be successful. 

We want to reinforce risk taking.  It is important to get children out of their comfort zone by embracing a challenge. When we try things that are not easy- new work- new genres, etc., it provides opportunities to make mistakes. We want to celebrate mistakes and show how we learn from an error and how this impacts our next actions.  Mistakes teach us how to move forward and be resilient.  Through a growth mindset we practice how to persevere-don’t give up, to visualize next steps, think about resources that are available to help us and try a different strategy. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Looking forward to a fantastic year,

Maria Burdette
