Student Empowerment Teams

 

The Hallsville High School Student Empowerment Team Program is a program designed to help Freshmen and new students to Hallsville feel welcome and comfortable at HHS and develop positive character traits among existing Hallsville upperclassmen.

Studies have repeatedly shown that students who fail their freshman year are very likely to drop out of school before graduation.

Studies also show that character education programs produce positive results within the school including increased academic success and decreased negative interactions between students and between students and teachers.

HALLSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING A SAFE, NURTURING ENVIRONMENT AND ENSURING THAT EVERY STUDENT WILL GRADUATE AND EVERY STUDENT WILL RECEIVE EDUCATION BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL!

Mentors meet with "their Freshmen" once a month and make other contacts during the course of the month to encourage and help their freshmen achieve success at HHS. The theme of the mentors is "Failure is NOT an option for my freshmen."

During the monthly mentor meetings, the mentors meet with their 2-3 freshmen to develop a relationship and then establish goals for interacting with their mentees outside of the mentor period.

During the mentor program meetings, the rest of the campus participates in the character education program designed to teach students character traits such as trustworthiness, honesty, integrity, caring, etc. designed to make HHS students better citizens.
