Hillside is proud to be implementing the Core Essentials character education program. The program provides a “value of the month” focus that encourages individual classrooms, the entire school, and every family to emphasize the same aspects of each value. Core Essentials is designed to synchronize the home and school by presenting values on which both can agree.
A value is an inward belief or attitude that affects someone’s outward behavior. The values that Core Essentials emphasizes are common attitudes that every parent and teacher wants children to learn and demonstrate.
Values affect behavior by helping you…
• treat others right
• make smart decisions
• maximize your potential
