Parent Info Cont’d
At Ryerson, we want students to work positively and cooperatively inschool, at home and in their communities. Our Character Education Pro-gram is based on the 8 Keys of Excellence:
Speak With Good Purpose, Integrity, Balance, Commitment, Failure Leads to Success,
Ownership,Flexibility, and This Is It.
Students are given many opportunities to prac-tice the 8 Keys at school, and we encourage them to use these habits of ex-cellence in all aspects of their lives. Each month, we have oneKey that we focus on. There isan assembly each month to high-light the new key, and to cele- brate a month of success. InSeptember classes will use their understanding of the Keys to build a Class Agreement that reflects how thestudents in the class will treat each other, how they will treat fellow stu-dents in other classes and how they will respect their school environment.Ask your child about their class agreement today!For more information about our program, please see the Character Educa-tion page in your child’s planner. You can also visit the 8 Keys of Excel-lence website atwww.8keys.org. We appreciate your support as we allwork together to guide our students toward a future full of confidence, lead-ership, teamwork and motivation!
