Restorative Justice Education

Our administrators, teachers and support staff have been trained by organizations such as Restorative Justice Education to help them build a culture of care at our school. This approach can be seen throughout the school—in the hallways, classrooms, on the playground and in the ways we support students through conflicts.

We continue to expand our knowledge of how to use restorative practices as both a way to build a culture that is welcoming to all and as an alternative to traditional and punitive approaches to discipline.

Social/Emotional Resources for Parents & Families

Social and emotional learning (SEL) gives children the tools they need to feel more safe, secure and confident. This helps them grow, mature and become more successful in school and their daily lives. Visit this page for resources to support the physical and mental health, behavioral and emotional needs of your child and family.
