Dear Stallion Families,
Welcome back for the second half of the 2018-2019 school year! We hope you had a wonderful Winter Break, and that you are well rested for the second semester.
Stetson Hills is excited to announce that we will be bringing All Things EQ to our Stallion community starting in January. The program focuses on developing our students’ EQ or “emotional quotient”, and will help us to build a shared vocabulary and value system to our existing school community. Students will participate in brief weekly lessons with real world applications at school and at home. Parents will receive a weekly email which will give the motto of the week as well as ideas for supporting the mindset at home. We will continue to offer character lessons through our existing Second Step and PBIS programs. In fact, All Things EQ will support our PACE philosophy perfectly! Here is an example:
How am I showing up?
Pride and Perseverance: Am I being kind and helpful in this moment?
Accountability and Attitude: Am I using positive self talk?
Cooperation and Caring: Am I making an honest effort?
Excellence and Engaged: Am I focusing on solutions instead of problems?
We are also pleased to report that, thanks to your generous donations, we will be purchasing 105 new Chromebooks for 5-7th grades with this year’s Boosterthon funds! We now have one to one devices in the middles school, and 2 full sets of Chromebooks in grades 3-6. Utilizing Boosterthon funds this year in grades 5-7 has allowed us to redistribute existing technology devices as well. We were able to move more Chromebooks and Ipads into grades K-2. Our journey to having one to one devices across campus is not yet complete. However, we are so much closer to our goal thanks to our amazing Stallion community and our fabulous PTSA. Thank you!
