It is our goal to maintain a positive and safe learning environment for all students and teachers involved in Starfire After-School classes. We share our expectations for behavior in the Starfire Classroom Charter that we discuss with our students and ask them to sign. We also engage our kids in class discussions about the habits of mind that we value.
Our expectations are the same as for the normal school day: 1) be courteous and respectful, 2) be compassionate and empathetic, 3) be inclusive, 4) be healthy and safe, 5) be responsible, 6) bring a positive attitude and have fun! 7) bring a growth mindset.
Starfire recognizes that success depends on both academic achievement and character. We help students foster character strengths and habits of mind that are essential for their own success and well-being.
