Physical education is an important component of our students’ physical and emotional development. Teamwork and sportsmanship are taught in the context of athletic skill development.
Your child's physical safety is of utmost importance. We have a cross-functional team that manages our safety plan, drills and training in conjunction with local fire and police. Our campus is monitored by security cameras and our staff is trained for emergency preparedness and CPR certified.
In sixth grade, students participate in D.A.R.E., a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teach children from Kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives. https://dare.org
Taste Nutrition offers meals prepared daily from scratch using the freshest, local, natural and organic ingredients available. Students can access chef-crafted meals and healthy “grab and go” selections daily in a cafeteria-style environment, while meals for preschool, pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students are also available and delivered directly to the classroom. The milk program is offered for students in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade.
Thursday mornings, we start the day with our Get Active Program. For 30 minutes before school, students walk a circuit around the campus. The benefits of this program extend well into the day. Teachers report that students are more attentive and engaged in classroom discussion.
Our philosophy is simple - treat others with respect and act in a compassionate manner. We have a faculty directed SAINTS initiative, which builds the opportunity to discuss and be rewarded for kindness and compassion into our daily routines. Our program provides lessons that assist in creating a “caring majority” by building knowledge and skills in students and facilitating a positive school climate.
Other resources available to students are the 1:1 Counseling Services and on-campus Health Office.
