HERO and Homecoming Week
GKHS
Monday, September 16, 2019

From our assistant principal, Ms. Aiossa:

Dear Genoa-Kingston High School Families

This year we will be using the HERO system.  The HERO program is designed as a two-prong system. Through the use of HERO, GKHS will be able to monitor students’ tardies to their first-period class, as well as to reward students for demonstrating positive behaviors throughout the school environment.  The “Creed of the COGS” promotes character, ownership, getting involved, and safety, as the tenets we hope our students will exhibit.  A copy of the school-wide expectations matrix is attached.  Students are able to access their student HERO accounts to see what points have been earned, as well as if students have been issued any behavior consequences associated with the tardies accumulated.   Families will receive an email notification when their students accumulate points or have been issued a tardy.  Students will be allowed to redeem these points for a variety of different items and/or privileges throughout the school year.  HERO points earned are reset at the end of each semester.

During homecoming week, students who dress up during our spirit days, participate or attend powder puff, float building, and the homecoming game, will earn HERO points.
