FISD & the Greater Good
The importance of good character has been, and will continue to be, a focus at FISD. Our character is what determines how we respond to the situations and circumstances of life. It is much more than just what we try to display for others to see; it is who we are, even when no one is watching. Good character is doing the right thing because it is right to do what is right.
The Portrait of a Floresville ISD Graduate illustrates our district’s commitment to develop 21st century graduates that possess character traits that lead to success. It specifically identifies that with students, parents, staff and community working together, graduates of FISD will act with respect and integrity to contribute to the greater good.
Character Day was Friday, September 18. This coming week you will see examples of how FISD participated in this international event dedicated to celebrating the importance of character in our schools and our communities. Throughout this school year, you will hear from some students that have set examples of good character.
Recognizing outstanding character is an excellent way to reinforce its importance. At FISD Board meetings, we take pride in recognizing students, staff and community members who emulate the core values that are the focus of our districtwide commitment to character. Those core values are: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. If you would like to make a nomination to be considered for the FISD Community of Character Award, please email me with the details. Working together, FISD students will be future ready - prepared to be good citizens in their communities and in the work force.
