October 11, 2017Dear Parents,
Solana Highlands places a tremendous value on supporting the development of the whole child. This means academics are just a part of our daily objectives in the growth of our students. We want them to strengthen their personal and social skills during their school day too. It is our hope that your children will thrive at our school academically, socially, and emotionally.
Our Character Counts Program is one of the many ways we promote positive life skills and habits. Our character traits, respect, caring, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, and citizenship are the “six pillars” that lay the foundation for strong character. Through daily reminders, announcements, assemblies, character counts cards, and more, we raise awareness, encourage, educate, and recognize positive character being demonstrated at our school.
This month, we are focusing on the character trait of respect. At our last assembly, we told the students that respect means:
- Treat others the way that you want to be treated (This is called the Golden Rule)
- Be accepting of others and their differences
- To deal peacefully with anger and disagreements
- To use positive language, and to be considerate
We encourage you to discuss respect and how to show it with your children at home. When the values of home and school are aligned, children understand expectations and know that “character counts” in all places.
Sincerely,Matt Frumovitz, PrincipalSolana Highlands School
