On the first day of school the CHS Positive Climate Commitments were shared and discussed in all classrooms. The CHS Community Values: Compassion, Honor, and Scholarship were selected based on the input of students, families and staff. Our hope is that this document will also be used at home as a conversation tool. It will come as no surprise that research shows that students do best when home and school expectations support each other. Building shared language is just one way to reduce the complexity of our kids’ lives, lessening anxiety and the potential for misunderstanding while increasing their young minds’ capacity to succeed in all areas of their lives.
The Commitment matrix is a living document. Though it was created by staff with input from students and families, this work will continue and evolve. Please look for opportunities to provide input and feedback throughout this year.
