Our dedicated counselor engages with each grade to discuss age-appropriate subjects like how to be a good friend, assertive versus aggressive behavior, calming and coping techniques and other strategies to succeed socially. Fourth graders spend the year celebrating differences and understanding how each person is unique and special.
Our full-time wellness teacher helps students acquire the knowledge and skills to develop attitudes and beliefs toward a healthy lifestyle. An integral part of the program is an emphasis on character development and ethics, including how to be a responsible, compassionate, and resilient individual with respect towards self, the community and the world. Fifth graders, for example, work through a unit on conflict resolution to prepare them to self-advocate in a healthy, productive way.
