Habits of Scholarship support students’ academic success and reflect the character traits of Sunnyside Elementary. Habits of scholarship also aid in developing study skills, persistence, self-awareness, and the ability to ask for feedback. Students are required to analyze their progress with regard to character and academic development.
We have been working on collaboration, perseverance, and responsibility in order to help our students be successful both in the classroom and in our communities. As a staff we are very excited to add RESPECT to our Habits of Scholarship. We have noticed that our students need a refocus on respect in order to be successful learners and collaborators. As we talked with several of our students last year about what respect means to them, they had some amazing things to add.
“Being kind to everyone”
“Treating your teachers like they have feelings too”
“Taking care of our things and staying away from things that aren't mine”
How are students taught these traits at Sunnyside?
El Education is built upon 10 design principles that animate a research-based model for transforming teaching, learning, and the character and culture of Sunnyside Elementary. Mrs. Shelby Whiting, our school counselor, along with the staff at Sunnyside Elementary focus on the character building aspects of these design principles on a daily basis through in class teaching and modeling, as well as weekly lessons provided by Shelby. These design principles support our Sunnyside Habits of Scholarship to promote and support students’ academic and social/emotional success.
