This Year, The Year of the Wildebeest, AISM is pleased to recognize “TENANCITY” as our character code attributes for inspiring rigorous self-learning and ethical values. The AISM TENANCITY Framework describes an AISM student as showing Tolerance, Endurance, being a Nimble Learner, Ambitious, and Caring, having Integrity, and being a Team Player who says Yes! … I can. (TENACITY)
As Michelle Borba states: “Character Education is woven in….not added on”
Our TENACITY code for the year is designed to instill and help us create a positive learning environment that assists and encourages parents, “as our students’ first and most import teachers”, in working with us to help make our school environment one in which students are anxious to come to school, work cooperatively, and learn!
We will be having our first Student of the Month winners on Monday, October 15th. Parents of our winning students will be notified, no later than the Wednesday of the prior week, for all the months that our character code will be observed.
Please note that we keep the winners quite, and don’t share this information with the students …:
- Parents “sneak” into the back of the Single Purpose Room
- When the winning student is called, the parents appear from behind the curtains
- Parents celebrate this achievement with their student
- Pictures are taken
Please see sample picture from this morning “Student of the Month Drill,” … as well as our character code below.
