In the house program, students can accumulate points through twenty-one distinct positive behaviors, fostering a culture of recognition and reward within the school community. These behaviors are the foundation for building a strong and supportive house system.


  1. When responding to any adult, answer by saying “Yes/No, ma’am” or “Yes/No, sir.”  

  2.  When speaking to an individual or group, stand up straight, make eye contact, and speak out at an appropriate volume. 

  3. When meeting someone, extend your hand for a firm handshake.  Look the person in the eye and introduce yourself and ask his name.  Make every effort to remember his name and use it within the next few minutes of conversation.

  4. Make eye contact. When someone is speaking, keep your eyes on him at all times.  If someone makes a comment, turn and face that person.

  5. If someone wins a game or does something well, congratulate that person.  If you win or do well at something, do not brag.  If you lose, do not show anger.  

  6. During discussions, respect other students’ comments, opinions, and ideas.  

  7. If you are asked a question in conversation, you should ask a question in return. It is polite to show others that you are just as interested in them as they are in you.

  8. Be respectful with words and actions.  (Do not smack your lips, roll your eyes, or show disrespect with other gestures.)

  9. Answer all questions with a complete sentence.  Do not use words like nah or yeah in place of no or yes.

  10. When moving from one class to another, you are to be quiet and orderly.

  11. Make every effort to be as organized as possible.

  12. When homework is assigned, there is to be no moaning or complaining.  All homework must be completed on time.

  13. Know the teachers’ names and greet them as well as any visitors in the hallways.

  14.  Be deliberate to include others in your conversations and activities.  (For example, if you see someone sitting alone, ask that student to sit with you.) 

  15. Clean up after yourself whether in the classroom, lunchroom, restroom, bus, or on a field trip.  It is important to be responsible for your trash no matter where you are and to be sure not to litter.  Leave an area in a neat condition.

  16. Pray before you eat lunch or your snack.  Take that time to thank God for His blessings in your life.

  17. Accept that you are going to make mistakes.  Learn from them, and move on.

  18.  No matter the circumstances, be honest.

  19.  In all areas of your life, be the best person you can be.

  20. If you see something that needs to be done or someone who needs help, do what you are able to do to be a help and a blessing.  

  21. Take responsibility for your actions.
