PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Principal’s Message

Our staff has been working on forming a new mission and vision for our school. The Mission of our school is: “Opening doors for endless possibilities.” At Hotchkiss K-8 we want to open doors for students so that they can have endless possibilities to pursue positive endeavors in their life. Our Vision statement is constructed to support our mission. Our Vision Statement plays off the word DOGS.

At Hotchkiss K-8 we believe in D.O.G.S.-

Diverse - Learning to appreciate uniqueness while seeking to understand differences. Showing kindness to all, being open to others' perspectives and teaching thinking skills which lead to new possibilities.

Opportunity - Providing whole-child education through rigorous academics, life skills, fine arts, S.T.E.M., health and wellness, clubs, athletics, extra-curricular activities, and other unique opportunities that empower all students.

G.R.I.T. - Growing to be life-long learners, Resiliency to be strong in the face of adversity, Integrity to be the best version of ourselves, and Tenacity to find enjoyment in a strong work ethic. Getting back up and trying again after making mistakes is learning: giving up is failing.

Safe - Providing an environment where students feel physically, academically, socially and emotionally safe.

"Are you walkin' the D.O.G.S.?"

As a staff we have made collective commitments to support the mission and vision of our school to help our students have the best possible education.

COUNSELOR'S CORNER

 
Excited to join the HK8 family

Dear Parents & Students,

My name is Jon Siegel, I am a professional counselor new to the Hotchkiss K-8 family and community. Approaching this new 2018-19 academic school year, I am excited to be here to support the various, social, emotional & academic needs of all our HK8 students.

Moving ahead this school year, there are multiple areas of focus for both our elementary and secondary aged students. One of the primary areas of focus this school year is assuring all students have the social-emotional tools to foster a healthy productive learning environment. Some classroom based curriculum may include self-care, wellness, conflict resolution, stress management, grief/loss supports, and responsibility-accountability.

For our middle-secondary (6th-8th grade) students, there will be an ongoing focus on career and college explorations, which include Individual Career & Academic Planning (ICAP) indicators. ICAP’s are developed via a web-based platform utilized by students to further explore academic and/or career endeavors. In addition, many students will have the opportunity to attend local career fairs, which highlight various vocational pursuits.

I look forward to serving and supporting the Hotchkiss K-8 students by fostering individual student empowerment, and self-worth via ongoing counseling supports & psycho-educational tools.

Regards,

Jon D. Siegel, M.A.
