HILLCREST HAS HEART
Staff and students focus on ALL CHARACTER TRAITS all of the the time while teaching, in classroom meetings, small group sessions, and as they move through their daily routines to build those very important teacher-student relationships. Students are encouraged to participate in discussions, and are given examples of real life situations in order to better learn and understand the importance of good life skills. While referring to all character traits, we do pay special attention to one trait throughout each month.
Here's our plan:
Respect - October; Responsibility - November; Honesty - Dec/ January;
Caring - February; Cooperation - March; Environment - April; Citizenship - May
The Grove Foundation visited Hillcrest on May 5 to recognize three 5th grade students for their amazing qualities. They represent the program, "Helping Students Grow". Elisabeth Mooney, Kyla Sherry, and Audrey Stanton were presented with certificates, and gift cards for Anderson's Books. The students display outstanding qualities such as always having positive attitudes, organization and time management skills, being friendly and helping others, and being good citizens. Congratulations!
