RE: AISM Character Code:
This Year, The Year of the Wildebeest, AISM is pleased to recognize “TENACITY” as our Character Code attributes for inspiring rigorous self-learning and ethical values.
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!
The AISM TENACITY Framework is below:
Today, we had our first Student of the Month winners for “Tolerance.”
“It’s an universal law– intolerance is the first sign of an inadequate education. An ill-educated person behaves with arrogant impatience, whereas truly profound education breeds humility.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
We are very pleased that this year, “The Year of the Wildebeest”, we have an excellent and very tolerant community.
Congratulations to this month’s Tenacity (Tolerance) winners! It is important to note that our school climate is very tolerant and respectful of all students. To that, we say thank you – and to our parents, we appreciate the support; it is a “job well done”.
Please see pictures of today’s winners below, and a special thanks to the parents who were able to attend. As we know that when it comes to student character, “you are your student’s first and most important teachers.”
