THA September Essay/Poster Contest: Values Matter
Values are an integral part of living a fulfilling life, being a successful student, and having a positive impact on others. During the coming year we will continue to emphasize and celebrate positive behavior utilizing our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) Program and the district Values Matter initiative. All of our students have the power to make good choices, demonstrate positive behaviors, and make values matter. Each month we will focus on a specific value and its importance in our daily lives. Our September value is respect. Students will explore the importance of respect in their lives and work on ways of exemplifying this value. <
