Making Our School Better - Anonymous Student Survey

From Principal Bakker: Almost a year ago, I began the process of reflecting on what it means to be a Tiger, and have just recently found an educational partner to explore these attributes.

I am seeking input regarding your vision of what it means to be a Fenton Tiger, and the legacy that it carries even after students leave FHS.

After 18 years, I believe there are fundamental characteristics of being a Tiger that will always be ingrained in our students and community. At the same time, however, I also recognize some traits may have evolved.

As a lifelong learner, I value opportunities to collaborate, brainstorm, dialogue, and facilitate ways of making FHS a better place. To do this effectively, I need your help.

Please take a moment to fill out the attached survey to better inform me and other district stakeholders of your views regarding being a Tiger.

The survey, although short, does ask you to think deeply about what it currently means and what it should mean. This survey was also shared with FHS staff a little over a week ago for their input.

This survey is completely anonymous, and the results will be tabulated by an independent third party and shared with FHS Administration. I welcome your opinions and feedback as we work to make FHS a better place.

Positivity Project: Theme: Appreciation of Beauty & Excellence

This week our school community will be focusing on the character strength of Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence. Appreciation of beauty and excellence means you notice and value the world’s beauty and people’s skills. You don’t take things for granted.

Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence is the ability to identify and enjoy that which is admirable in the world. There are three types of goodness in which positive psychology focuses: physical beauty (e.g. a sunset, a song, or building); an exceptional skill or talent; and moral goodness (e.g. a character strength). Appreciation of beauty can generate awe; appreciation of a skill can generate admiration; and appreciation of moral goodness can generate moral elevation. All of these feelings (awe, admiration, and moral elevation) help us forget ourselves and find increased joy and meaning in the world.

Appreciating excellence and beauty helps an individual experience positive emotions and connect to the world around them. It’s an outward facing strength, meaning the individual is focused on the world outside their head. And, not only is the individual outwardly focused, but often deeply absorbed in a sense of awe or admiration, freeing them to forget anxieties and troubles. And it is associated with other strengths, such as gratitude, curiosity, love of learning, and purpose.
