PurposeFull People Social Emotional Learning

We have a new SEL/character curriculum that we are using this year - PurposeFull People by Character Strong. Each month, scholars will learn and practice a character trait. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too! During the month of September, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate responsibility.

Responsibility: to take action and understand how our choices affect others, ourselves, and the world.

Think About It

Here are some questions to ask your child at home or talk about as a family:

K-2 What are the responsibilities you have at home? How do people know what they are responsible for? Which responsibilities are you really good at?

3-5 Why is it important to show Responsibility at home? Where are some other places that we can show responsibility, and how does responsibility look the same or different as it does at home?

Ipad Insurance information

Does your student have Ipad insurance? Just $25 per year covers many oopsies that could be very expensive. This can be paid in the office by cash/check or ParentVue by Credit/Debit.
