All Blue Haze Elementary students (and staff) in Kindergarten through 4th Grade are sorted in one of four houses. We call them GRIT Houses. The four houses are Gumption, Resilience, Integrity, and Tenacity. Once a student is sorted into a house, they stay in that house for the rest of their time at BHE!
Being a part of a GRIT House helps students feel a sense of belonging outside of their own classroom and builds community across grade levels. Every Thursday we wear our house colors and have house meetings!
As a member of a GRIT House students are working to earn House Points. Students and Teachers earn points by demonstrating GRIT, showing positive behavior, and working hard in the classroom. At the end of each grading period we will have a “House Party” where the winning house will get to celebrate their success. At the end of the year we will award the “BHE House Cup” to the house that accumulated the most points throughout the year!
