Dear HST Family,
At HST, we value every aspect of education. We believe that a student's education goes far beyond just teaching them reading, math, and science, but is also about teaching them how to be helpful and productive citizens in an ever changing world. We do this by embedding social-emotional learning and character education into every classroom and experience at school.
Over the past few years, we developed and began using the acronym ROAR (Respect, Organized, Achieve, Ready to Learn) to help reinforce the values and expectations on campus. Those that are attending school on campus will see this acronym (like the image below) in the classrooms, hallways, and cafeteria. Those that are attending school virtually will see the acronym displayed in their schoology courses and possibly as part of their teacher’s virtual classroom.
In order to better serve our students, we would like to understand what each word in the ROAR acronym represents to all the people that make up our school community. For this reason, we are asking all parents, students, and teachers to fill out this survey to give us feedback on what Respect, Organized, Achieve, and Ready to Learn means to them. The survey is only five questions and should take less than ten minutes to fill out.
Thank you for helping us to improve every student’s educational experience at HST.
