  1. A goal I would like my students to set is to really try to be a good scholar. We talk about the four things that will help them be good scholars at home and especially at school and I would like to see them live that. Be respectful, be responsible, be honorable, and be safe. They are kindergarteners. What better time to teach them the benefits of being a good scholar?

  2. Our students strive to achieve the following Six Pillars of Character® of the No Excuses University and the rest will follow:

    T rustworthiness
    R espect
    R esponsibility
    F airness
    C aring
    C itizenship.

  3. My students all work towards increased independence. As a classroom of special needs learners, we focus on building autonomy in all aspects of our day.

  4. I would like for each of my students to set a goal to do their best every single day. I would also like for each of them to work hard and make their AR goals! 🙂
