Monthly guidance lessons are presented to each classroom. Our philosophy is prevention rather than intervention. We present lessons that introduce students to the six pillars of good character. These include: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
In addition we have several small group offerings for those students with more specific needs.
We believe that school should be a safe environment where maximum learning can take place. All students are entitled to a bully free learning zone.
We believe that prevention and education is the key. During our guidance lessons we use role playing and many other activities to help children become assertive but respectful individuals. We teach the children how to use I messages when feeling pressured or mistreated by others.
Students should feel safe to report bullying! Please know that all reports are taken seriously and investigated by campus administration.
