Ron Clark Academy (RCA) is a model school that’s helped showcase the positive impact of House Points on school culture. With their experience, they've developed resources including House Names and crests that are open to others to use.
That’s how Del Valle Elementary’s Principal, Jay Maines, and his team named their Houses:
Mr. Maines explains that using these names allowed Del Valle to use RCA’s resources and gave their Houses an important sense of history and multicultural connection.
Reveur means “the dreamers.” RCA details that “the members who fill this group are students filled with freedom and wild abandon who recognize their dreams and will let nothing stand in the way of achieving them.”
Amistad has roots in Mexico, translates to “the friends” and celebrates the unconquered spirit of its members.
Altruismo stems from Brazil and is a name given to local Brazilians by the Portuguese, meaning “the givers.”
Isibindi focuses on the growth and strength of members. The word comes from Zulu and translates to “the courageous.”
