We believe that it is an entire community's responsibility to help students grow into kind and compassionate adults. We also know how challenging this can be in the current climate of COVID, social media, and other distractions. In a time when testing and academics feel like the most important aspect of educations, we can lose focus on investing in the whole child and the habits and traits that make them successful in all areas of life. We have adopted the CharacterStrong curriculum built around these "Eight Essential" character traits and the social-emotional skills that have been proven to help us be productive, empathetic, successful people. We will be working together to intergrate character development and and social emotional learning to ensure a focus on the whole child!
