Project Description

We tell our students that the world cannot do without them. We tell them they can do anything they set their minds to. We tell them they can be the brightest, shiniest stars in the sky, and that the world will be a better place because of them. Adapted from The Star Polisher by Leah Beck

The Star Polisher project invites students to share stories about staff members—teachers, administrators and support staff—who have helped them feel connected and become successful at school.

This project supports the district’s focus area of “Student Connectedness” in which staff strive to “create meaningful relationships with our students to promote their academic success.” The Star Polisher Project gives our students an opportunity to reflect on how staff members are helping them connect to school and also will give our staff feedback on the positive impacts they have on their students.
