A big piece of the Center Elementary focus is around character development. We have what is called the “Character Trait of the Month” and special recognition is given to those individuals “caught” displaying the character trait. In addition, we have three standard expectations of all students K-5: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful (affectionately called the 3 B’s). Please take some time to review what is means to be safe, responsible and respectful prior to the first day of school. Discuss what these expectations mean for you so that when they arrive on the first day of school students are ready to have the same conversation with their teachers.
Attendance is a big part of the academic and character success of students. As I have said before, every minute counts! Students arriving late or leaving early are impacted by their perfect attendance rating. As a reminder school hours are 8:15 for those eating breakfast, 8:35 for those eating breakfast at home, and dismissal at 3:45. Please schedule doctor’s appointments and other events around these hours whenever possible.
Once again, we are looking forward to a great year. Below you will find “Save the Date” events you might want to attend. See you on August 12, 2014!
