November Character Counts

November 6, 2017 - On Friday, our students in grades PK - fourth celebrated their first character counts assembly of the school year. Character Education is important at Hoosic Valley. We wish to create a school environment that allows all students to feel safe, confident and eager to learn. We hope to accomplish these goals by providing services and opportunities that promote positive characteristics throughout the school year.

We have established a set of school-wide expectations”, which is a key step in building a positive school climate.   The expectations are:

  • Act Responsibly
  • Be Ready to Learn
  • Create Respect
  • Display Self-Control

Our monthly virtues include:  Ready to Learn, Self-Control, Citizenship, Empathy, Integrity, Friendship, Responsibility, Tolerance, Civility, and Courage. Respect is our eleventh character trait and it's so important we promote the virtue of respect all year long. Click here to learn more about our Character Education Program.
