Deer Park Elementary students and staff slide into House Sorting DayPosted by Matthew Lucas at 9/29/2017
Deer Park Elementary's students and staff recently celebrated the school's first House Sorting Day, more popularly known as Slide Day. The event was part of the school's new character and team-building initiative called The House System, through which every student and faculty member is sorted into one of five houses.
"Each of the houses represents a character trait that will be the cornerstone of their learning," Principal Lisa McLaughlin explained. "House members will belong to their house for their entire elementary career (kindergarten through fifth grade)."
The five houses include The House of Determination (Purple), The House of Compassion (Blue), The House of Respect (Green), The House of Responsibility (Orange), and The House of Courage (Red). On House Sorting Day, each student plunged down an inflatable slide and used an iPad to be sorted into his or her house as parents, students, and employees cheered them onward.
"Both students and teachers alike will learn to set goals together, compete together, motivate and encourage each other, and ultimately form a family-like bond with their house members," Assistant Principal Whitney Rich added. "Each house will contain a mixture of students from each grade level, allowing for peer mentors and an opportunity for students to get to know other children in the school."
