September Student of the Month - Responsibility
In the month of September, students will learn about the character counts trait, "responsibility". Responsibility means:
-doing what is expected of oneself
-doing your best
-when you do something wrong, admit it and make it right.
Teachers will introduce this trait to students and provide information throughout the month, giving students an opportunity to show responsible behavior. Mrs. Cuellar, our school counselor, will provide class presentations during library specials September 13 through the 15th, further supporting this message. Our student of the month celebration will be on September 27th at 2:00 PM. You will be notified early that week whether your child has been selected by their teachers to be one of our students of the month, and invited to attend a recognition celebration to include snacks that you can enjoy with your student. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 505-721-4400.
