At Athlos Academy of Utah, one student from each class is recognized weekly for exhibiting one of the Athlos Performance Character traits. Students are chosen by their teachers, who are tasked with telling the story of why their students are such an excellent example of the Performance Character trait of the week. Here is a round-up of some of our great Performance Character stories out of Athlos Academy of Utah.
Remington is traditionally creative, always giving so much detail to his artwork and writing. He also thinks outside the box to help make a better learning environment for those around him.
It seems Megan doesn’t even realize how much of a leader she is. Her sweetness and kindness make everyone want to be her friend. The quiet, considerate way she goes about her school work is an example everyone can follow. She truly leads by example.
Lily has shown great courage this year in coming to Athlos. Last year she had a bad experience in kindergarten and it made her feel anxious about school. She has shown great courage by coming to school each day even though she sometimes still felt nervous. She has also shown courage by always trying her best on her work, especially when it’s challenging to her.
Lexi showed initiative when she began picking up trash on the playground and other students started following her lead. Athlos Academy of Utah has a much cleaner playground as a result.
Laney went through a period of time when she could not see very well and met this challenge with optimism. It was shortly after the beginning of school when Laney was diagnosed with poor eyesight. She never complained that she could not see properly. She always kept her spirits high and her academics hardly suffered. Laney exhibited optimism throughout the entire process.
For Jolie, nothing comes at face value. She constantly approaches her teachers with her nose scrunched up and her eyes deep in thought as she challenges others with new ideas. Once she figures out the concept, she embraces the new information with exuberance. Jolie’s curiosity drives her passion for life.
During student-led conferences, Ethan set a goal for himself to work on his attention span and to ask more questions when he is confused. Following setting this goal, Ethan has followed through and demonstrated consistency in his words and actions. He is way more engaged in and responsible for his learning than ever before.
Daniel comes to school every day excited to learn. He approaches each new lesson with enthusiasm.
Claire is so wonderful. She is attentive, ready to listen and learn throughout the day, always willing to help others, social at recess, and has just an overall amazing attitude. She is always respectful and kind with adults and peers.
Brady is a great example of humility. Humility is the quality of being humble and means putting the needs of another person before your own, and thinking of others before yourself. Brady is kind and patient. He is always more concerned about the needs of others and knows how to be a great team player. He never cuts into lines; he walks quietly down the halls without expecting recognition. He never thinks his ideas are more important than anyone else.
Talan is so unwavering in his focus. Classwork absolutely comes before socializing. He has many friends in this class but when it is time to work he is the first to sit down and get it done. He sets a great example for those friends to follow!
Rising up to meet challenges and persevering in spite of failure.
