WORDS MATTER! School Culture Update
Breeze Hill is officially launching Pillar 3, Choice Words, of our school culture initiative. During the week of November 12, all students and teachers attended assemblies hosted by Mrs. Higley and Mr. Green to prepare for Choice Words month.
Why is Choice Words one of our pillars? Simply stated, "language creates realities and invites identities". The words we use have a dramatic impact on how we perceive ourselves, how others perceive us, and how others perceive themselves. Are the words we use, words that encourage, support, instill hope and a belief in potential? Or, do the words we use cause others to feel that they are not good enough, do not possess the capacity to succeed and ultimately limit their possibilities? What words do you use to describe yourself and your potential?
Here's a thought to keep in mind this month: "Choose your words wisely--they matter!"
During the school culture assemblies, students and staff viewed videos which demonstrated the power of words and ways to bring support, happiness and hope to one another. Take a few moments to view the videos yourself to gain a sense of what we are aspiring to develop through the careful use of words.

About Breeze Hill
Breeze Hill Elementary School opened in 1992 in southern Vista with a vision of setting the highest possible academic and personal expectations for students. The goal of educators there is for each student to experience a sense of pride through positive accomplishments, mastery of grade-level standards, and development of valuable relationships as we prepare them for a successful future in the 21st century. The school was awarded the California Distinguished School Award in 2000 and 2004.
The school staff works collaboratively with families to ensure a strong community connection. Parents participate in a variety of ways, including through the PTA, School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee and by volunteering in the classroom. Throughout the year the PTA raises money and hosts events which help strengthen the programs and community at the school. Some of these events include the annual fall carnival, family movie nights, book fair and literacy night, school talent show and Jog-a-Thon.
Breeze Hill serves a diverse population of 870 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. There are 33 classroom teachers, and a number of certificated staff who work collaboratively to educate all students. Staff members are role models of courtesy, respect, hard work, and personal achievement.
