What is the House System?
The House System is a dynamic, exciting, and proven way to create a positive climate and culture for students and staff. Using this method will help our school implement processes that build character, relationships, and school spirit. Our guidelines are designed to give you a streamlined framework that can be applied to any type of learning environment. The house system gives students the opportunity to connect with students across classes and grades that they may not normally have a chance to interact with each other. This interaction helps students gain more friendships and create a family-like culture at our school. We currently have over 500 students at Elm Street Elementary alone! The house system will make our school seem a little bit smaller.
The house system creates:
A change of culture
Makes our school seem smaller/more personal
Provides opportunities for students to connect across grades
Promotes core character traits
A sense of pride
To create leadership opportunities
