Back-To-School Resources

For Administrators

Establishing Culture

Another idea… Every item that has a student’s name on it, also has their graduation class on it too. So instead of just name, 6th grade, Ms. Jones’ Homeroom, they put the name and year they will graduate. Advisory assignments are split alphabetically so you basically still have the same information, but are always reminding students (and parents) to begin with the end in mind. This is an example of a simple thing that can have a major cultural impact. You can also add your school logo and motto too!
