October Asset of the Month: Caring School Climate

School provides a caring, encouraging environment.


Connor Palsgrove, YAC Active Member writes: 

A caring and encouraging school climate takes a lot of work to maintain. Schools should have after-school activities that students could participate in together. This helps encourage the students to try new things, make new friends, and learn important skills. To create a caring school climate, my school involves the students as much as possible. For example, my school has extracurricular activities such as sports, chess, and many others, all of which teach students skills and demonstrate how to care for others and the environment. Our school also holds fundraisers such as bake sales, the Fall Fun Festival, and many others run by the students. Beyond the financial knowledge students are gaining, they likewise learn about teamwork. This helps involve students and creates a nice, fun, friendly, and caring climate for the school. For example, as 8th graders we take part in many of the school fundraisers we have; it is a blast hosting fundraisers and seeing the smiles on everyone's faces. I am also a part of the football team for my school and it helps teach teamwork, good sportsmanship, other life skills, and forms friendships that last a lifetime. From my point of view, football is extremely fun, especially when you are playing with your friends, having a good laugh about messing up, or making a touchdown for the game point. Being a part of football creates exciting, nervous, fulfilling, and fun times. I love football and it is an amazing experience. I get to play with my friends, learn, and help create a caring and encouraging climate for my school. Creating a caring and encouraging school climate involves forming friendships, involving students, and learning skills. This helps create a caring and encouraging school environment.
