Kindness Matters.... even when an adult is not around!
The students at Dixon school are a wonderful group of kids with a strong understanding of social responibility. We have noticed a few things after spending some time observing the school culture and scanning for some information from the students that supports our new focus for Dixon school.
- Students in the French and English programs have limited social involvement during recess and lunch
- Students involved in making poor social choices can ALWAYS tell you what was wrong, and how changing their own behavior could make things better
- We surveyed 170 of our intermediate students. 86% of these students said that Dixon students are more kind when an adult is present and often social responsibility decreases during unsupervised times.
