Horizon Kindness Challenge!
    This school year the PBIS team is working together on how to help students not only understand but be able to demonstrate what kindness is and how it relates to the 3 C’s at Horizon. (Courtesy, Caring and Cooperation). Over the upcoming school year, the children will have many opportunities to demonstrate what kindness in action look likes and, if chosen by their teacher as the student of the month, they will be able to spin for a special reward which includes recess with a counselor, being a specialist helper, and being a guest announcer on the Friday edition of the Horizon news program (HTV). 

    Students will explore what it means to be CARING.

    Caring is being kind, helpful and generous to others.  
    Caring people think of others and are considerate. 
    Caring means thinking about how your actions and words affect others. 
    Caring people have compassion and empathy.   They care about others’ feelings and needs. 
    Caring means being thankful for what others do for you.

    Tips to reinforce CARING at home are:

    If you have pets talk about the care that they require and enlist your children to help.
    Ask your children to find people who are caring in real life, in movies, or in stories.
    Help out an elderly neighbor.
    Explore with your children ways they can be caring to their family, friends, others in need, animals, and the earth.
