Schools are very busy places and in the fast-paced world of teaching and learning sometimes educators do not take the time to reflect, recognize and celebrate all the accomplishments experienced during a school year. This year Fox Hill School took time to do just that, to reflect, to recognize and to celebrate student accomplishments. After six weeks of reflecting, discussing and selecting accomplishments within the classroom, students in grades K-2 and in grades 3-5 came together at our Sense of Accomplishment assembly to recognize and celebrate school, grade level and student accomplishments that were most meaningful to us. The condition, Sense of Accomplishment, is one of Dr. Quaglia’s eight conditions that make a difference in schools and it certainly made a difference in our school. Our assembly began with celebrating our community accomplishment for acquiring 30 iPads through our first PTO auction gala, it continued on with celebrating grade level accomplishments as each grade level shared their pride for goals achieved and ended with every student being recognized for individual achievement and effort towards reaching goals. Effort is a major part of achievement and a necessary and important trait when learning a new skill or trying something for the first time. I am very proud of our entire Fox Hill staff for the outstanding effort they put forth every day, there is never a doubt every Fox Hill staff member loves what they do and loves kids. I am also proud of our students and their families. The daily care, support and encouragement Fox Hill families give us and their children, motivates us to work hard and to put forth huge amounts of effort when faced with educational challenges. Successfully working together for kids now that is an accomplishment!
