August Phoenix Award - Wyatt Counts!

Each month, the school staff choose a student to receive the Homer Flex Phoenix Award based on their embodiment of the school’s core values: respect, productivity, and ownership.

Junior Wyatt Counts came back this fall ready to absolutely crush school. He is motivated, engaged, and hardworking, ready to actively participate in all of his classes. Wyatt is not only a good and caring friend, he’s also willing to work with everyone, and has a great sense of humor. He’s gone above and beyond in science, figuring out how to wire something complex that was even stumping the teacher! All of us here at Flex are lucky to have him and his support as part of our community.

Flex Digital Citizenship

As we return to our classrooms after so much time spent with online learning, the staff here at Flex have noticed a significant increase in distracted cell phone and technology use by our students. Part of our mission here at the school is to help students learn to live "adult lives," and with that comes the responsibility to act responsibly, especially with technology. Teaching students when it is appropriate to be use cell phones and be on non-educational content is the first step in this process. We are implementing new strategies to address this situation in our classrooms, and plan to employ community circles to facilitate discussions between students and staff. We realize that cell phone use, especially text messages, have become part of everyday life, and we hope to help students learn when and where it's appropriate to check them. You can help your student while they are in class by calling the office to leave messages and as a way to contact them in case of emergencies. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns, and thank you for your support!
