Student Houses

The House System helps to build a spirit of belonging. The student population is divided into 5 Houses. The Houses are called Dr. Seuss (blue), Hobbit (green), Idefix (purple), Petit Prince (yellow), and Potter (red). Each house is made up of students from all grade levels (k-6). Each House is headed by a team of teachers and a pair of student representatives. Students accumulate positive points for their House by exhibiting good citizenship, responsibility, team spirit, and commendable effort. 

The House Cup

The house cup is awarded at each assembly to the house who has earned the most points throughout the six weeks. Regular house assemblies consist of children gathering in their houses in the gymnasium. The assemblies begin with each house presenting their chant. The winning house will be rewarded with a special snack, extended recess, and a free dress day. Individual recognition is also given during the assembly. Ribbons are given to 3 selected students in each class who have excelled in an academic subject, physical education, and who has exemplified the house theme.

House Committee

A house committee, made up of staff members, is formed at the beginning of the school year to plan and organize events and activities that will take place throughout the year.

Goals of the House System

The goals of the house system are:

  • To encourage positive behavior, by awarding tokens to students who best demonstrate the virtue of the month and/or random acts of kindness.
  • To foster a sense of community and belonging by intergrading students from k-6, along with designated teachers in each house. 
  • To develop a buddy system, by having students in each house look out for each other, not only during house activities but throughout the course of the school day.
  • To promote leadership skills through team building activities.
  • To promote school spirit.
  • To provide each student with a chance to feel success.

Potter House

House Song

(to the tune of "Live While We're Young"  by One Direction)

We are the House of Potter, House of Potter
We like to help each other out
We love to work together, work together
That's what this house is all about

Ya, we'll be having so much fun
Making sure the job gets done
One for all and all for one
Ya, everyday is something new
Earning points for all our crew
We're just doing what we do

We are ready, ready, ready
For what lies ahead
We never fear a challenge
We step up instead
We all are very different
That's what makes it fun
This year let's show what
We can do while we're young
