Lead by Example

As a parent, it is important to share with your kids what you value. When having discussions about life’s experience, it is central to discuss the choices and what those choices have to say about what they value. The most impactful person right now in your child’s life is you. You impact their values and morals by the actions you choose each and everyday. If you say one thing, yet do another you are not wisely stewarding your child. If you tell your child to show kindness and patience to others, then your actions should follow suit by talking positively about others, listening to the other side of the story, then demonstrating discernment in your response to situations. If you tell your son or daughter to respect others, yet you complain about your neighbor, you are contradicting yourself and confusing your child. What you say and what you do must be congruent.

You are probably already aware that as a district we have defined what we believe to be important values to enable our kids to have a quality education. Those values are respect, integrity, high expectations, no excuses, accountability, students first, sense of community, and Bison pride. You see the values written of the shirts we wear and on the signs around our facilities. Values help define who we are and impact every decision we make. The same is true for your son or daughter. We believe these are more than words they are actions. They are the actions we choose each and everyday not only in school but outside of school-integrity.

Your children watch the way you deal with the many individuals you come in contact with during the day. They watch how you handle the person that cuts you off in traffic, and how you react when best laid plans go wrong. They also hear the comments you make about others. Please take the time to evaluate what your actions are communicating to your children. We all lead by example kindness and patience in this journey go a long way. In Bison Nation we do our best to lead by example not just by our words but by our actions. Thank you for sharing your children with us, we truly enjoy them and look forward to a great year!
