Powers' Points

  • November/December

    November seemed to be a blur between the first-trimester ending, Thanksgiving break, and FOOTBALL!  Congratulations to the football team, both players and coaches. What an amazing opportunity to make it to the state championship finals and play at the US Bank (TWICE)!  I had my share of popcorn while cheering you on. It’s safe to say the support of the entire community was felt and heard in those packed football stands. Way to go Chargers!

    Winter is here and seems to be coming in full force.  Colder temps and snowy roads are a perfect recipe for driving messes.  Please make sure your household/contact information is current and up-to-date in Campus should we have a late start or school closing this winter.  (For more information on our school’s Winter Weather Plan.)  Remember, it is every parent’s decision whether or not to send their student(s) to school during inclement weather.

    Winter Break will be here before we know it.  Enjoy this time of year because it always goes by too fast. I hope you’re able to spend time with your families, enjoy the holidays and come back from break rested and refreshed.  2020 is going to be a great year!

Character Pillars

  • In the early 1990s a group of local school representatives, parents, community members, and ministers met to determine a common set of acceptable character traits that could be taught in our schools and that would coincide with the beliefs of our two communities. The result of this effort was the identification of six Character Pillars. Almost 20 years later, these six, excellent Pillars still provide the basis for character education in our school district.

    • RESPECT: Showing genuine concern for yourself, others and the world around you.
    • RESPONSIBILITY: Being accountable for your actions and accepting the consequences of those actions.
    • RESILIENCY: Rebounding from significant stresses with a positive attitude and sense of balance.
    • INTEGRITY: Reflecting trustworthiness, honesty, and self-discipline.
    • COMPASSION: Willing to share and give aid or support to all people; caring.
    • UNDERSTANDING DIVERSITY: Realizing that everyone is unique and that all have their strengths and limitations.
