Lifeskills

Our learning community believes in promoting a positive environment for all students. The integration of daily lifeskills provides us with an avenue of "practicing what we preach." Daily announcements, classroom posters and reinforcements in school newsletters keep everyone up to date on practicing character education.

The Lifelong Guidelines are:
  • Be Truthful
  • Be Trustworthy
  • Active Listening
  • No Putdowns
  • Personal Best

The C.L.A.S.S. Life Goals are:
  • Do the Right Thing.
  • Treat People Right.

Once school begins in August, check here weekly for the growing list of lifeskills that Hinkle Creek students have been putting into practice.
