The beginning of the school year always brings such excitement and presents such wonderful opportunities. It is always our goal to create a safe and nurturing learning environment that promotes learning and leadership, so as a result we have created a new school wide program for our Conestoga School Community this year that we believe will support that goal. We are asking students to be Conestoga PROUD Leaders by showing the following characteristics :
- Show respect and kindness to everyone
- Use time wisely
- Think safety first
So if you hear your children say “first we work and then we play” you will know that they are referring to the characteristic of using their time wisely. Each month staff members will nominate students who demonstrated one or all of the characteristics during that month and they will receive a PROUD certificate. We are also developing some opportunities for our students that will help them develop leadership skills such as reading morning announcements and tutoring younger students. You will hear more about this program as the year progresses.
