Dear Harmony Utah Families,

After a successful program this past semester, Harmony is excited to invite you to participate in the elective course –  Growth Mindset with WhyTry. This course aims to fill a student’s imaginary backpack with tools for life success. Through a combination of age-appropriate hands-on activities using creative metaphors, art activities, music, and journaling, students will explore strategies for life. 

WhyTry is a 16-week course that will begin on January 23, 2023. The class is available to students in grades K-3 and 4-6. The cost of this semester course is $35.

The class is offered in a live, online format with a WhyTry-trained Harmony instructor. On the other weeks, students log in to Canvas for a brief assignment.

  • Students will log in to Zoom for a 45-minute session every other Tuesday or Thursday depending on grade level.
  • Session times: K-3rd grades at 1-1:45 pm and 4th-6th grades at 2-2:45 pm

If you are interested in enrolling your child in the WhyTry course, you can add it as part of the course registration process or request them through the resource request system.

If you have any questions, please contact your mentor or email the instructor directly, Lynelle McElhannon, .

We hope to see you in class!

Warm Regards,

John Thorn
