Valentine Elementary School will be establishing the houses of Altruismo, Amistad, Isibindi, and Rêveur. Students will earn points for their houses based on Academics, Effort, Citizenship, Behavior, Attendance, and Living the Lifelong Guidelines & Lifeskills.
Students are randomly sorted into one of the four houses during an assembly as the beginning of the year. Each House has unique properties such as its own color, symbols, nation of heritage, history, and more. Over time, each House also starts to take on its own values and personality driven by the culture of the students and staff within it. When a student or staff member becomes part of a house that is their house for life.
