Idle Hour Elementary School

Family Reflection/Character Education



As part of our Site-Based Management Team Character Education initiative, we will continue to have monthly Family Reflection Nights.  The purpose of this night is to promote a social and emotional home/school connection for our BEST Character Education curriculum.  Each month there will be a letter and theme with suggested activities and discussion topics.  In order to allow the time for busy families to participate, the teachers have agreed to not assign any homework other than the suggested activities for each theme on that night.  The students will also discuss the traits in a school wide meeting on the assigned days.
