Patriotic, Civic, And Character Education
HMCS will promote student character education to reaffirm values and qualities of character which promote an upright and desirable citizenry. The civic education will help cultivate informed students, encourage responsible participation in political life, and promote the fundamental values and principles of representative democracy in Utah and the United States.
We will teach patriotic education as part of the social studies curricula. Examples of civic education include:
History of the flag, etiquette, customs pertaining to the display and use of the flag, and other patriotic exercises;
Role modeling patriotic values associated with the flag;
Forms of government; and
The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.
It is acceptable for an elementary school student to choose not to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance for religious or other reasons and students should show respect for individuals who participate and who choose not to participate. Exemptions to civic education are outlined under Utah Rule.
