    Growth Mindset is the belief that with practice, perseverance, and effort, people have limitless potential to learn and grow.  When we operate in the growth mindset we tackle challenges without worrying about making mistakes or being embarrassed, focusing instead on the process of growth and knowing that if I make a mistake I can always make it better.  Remember, our brain is like a muscle that grows.  I may not know yet but I will learn!!

    Gerald A. Lawson of the Arts, Mathematics, & Science

    Gerald A. Lawson Academy is very proud to be named after such a brilliant innovator as Gerald A. Lawson. Mr. Lawson was a self-taught engineer who was instrumental in the video gaming, technology community. Mr. Lawson was known as the Father of the Video Gaming Cartridge and without his invention, video gaming as we know it today, would not exit. Mr. Lawson never wanted video games to be violent but felt that games could be a tool, a fun tool, where you learn from it.  Mr. Lawson is survived by his widow Mrs. Lawson, and his son and daughter. Thank you to the Lawson family for being a part of our school community.
