General Myer School
Through the General Myer Elementary School Character Counts program, the students have been focusing on the pillars of responsibility and fairness with Mrs. Camps, school counselor. They have learned about the importance of being responsible for duties at home and at school and discussed how critical it is to manage their own behavior and emotional self-control. They have focused on the importance of being held accountable for all they do, as well as being open-minded and accepting of others rather than making decisions or choices that may show favoritism or prejudice.
The school staff and students concluded the 2nd quarter with a Character Counts assembly on Feb. 20, recognizing those who earned awards for Responsibility and Fairness as well as those who made the honor roll.
Special recognition went to Ryan Gonzalez, a fourth grader, who took 3rd place in the Cochise County Spelling Bee. He competed against two eighth graders who earned 1st and 2nd place. During the assembly, he was awarded a $50 gift certificate for Hastings. The school staff and students are proud of his accomplishment!

Join homeschoolers group
A Classical Conversations Homeschoolers Group information meeting will be held on March 28 and April 10.
Classical Conversations, or CC, is a group of homeschoolers who meet once a week for classes modeled on the Classical Christian Education model.
Classes are led by paid tutors, but parents remain their children’s primary educators. Since CC is a national group with communities across the nation and on or near military posts throughout the world, homeschooling Families can enjoy the benefits of weekly classes and continuity as they move from one community to another. In Sierra Vista, programs are available for kindergarten through 4th grades and at the high school level.
Registration is open for the 2013/14 school year. Those interested can go to www.classicalconversations.com and request a free catalog or 1.808.352.6701, firstname.lastname@example.org or 803.9642 or email@example.com.
