6th - 8th Grades Citizenship

The fish philosophy is based on the Seattle Fish Market. The philosophy is about “Choosing Your Attitude”, “Play”, “Make their Day” and “Be There”. This is the challenge for our HK8 students. HK8 is about Hotchkiss Pride – Know it! Believe it! Live it!


Choose Your Attitude

Each child has the choice on how they handle every situation. It is our responsibility as the role models to help our students choose a positive attitude that is based on good decisions.


Play

Students need to enjoy what they are learning everyday at HK8. Students need the art of play in their daily lives.


Make Their Day

Feeling good is contagious. We want to help our students make each other’s days as well as making themselves feel good.


Be There

Students need to be focused and disciplined. They are responsible to be at school everyday and to make a good decision to be there and do the best they can everyday.

We will work with all students on understanding G.R.I.T. Growth, Resiliency, InteGRITy, and Tenacity. We will focus on the GROWTH MINDSET ATTITUDE.

6th Grade - Will follow the Field of Dreams, Mark Hoog book/journal series
