The phrase student-centered school can mean different things to different people, but to Grandview High School Principal Kim Casey it means creating a school environment where decisions are made based on the best interest of the student. It’s a place where the student comes first.
For the students in Virginia Maciel’s third grade class the recent McClure Elementary School Walk-A-Thon was about more than earning money for their school. It was also about tracking their steps, pushing themselves and working to earn food for malnourished kids around the world.
For some students getting a pat on the back isn’t something that comes often. For a lot of students being recognized at school for something as simple as holding the door open for a fellow student can mean the world. It’s that feeling of pride that comes along with recognition and praise that Grandview Middle School administrators, teachers and staff are hoping to capitalize on. They are hoping by promoting good behavior and a culture of respect, they can encourage all students to take a little pride in their school.
