Our Belief System

These are our sustaining values. They are the guiding principles that form the basis of our work. Research -based and based on our experience, all our work flows from this well of knowledge.


1. Social Skills Are Not Innate Social skills are vital to academic and social success, but social skills requirements vary according to situations. This sometimes makes it difficult for children to meet the community norms or expectations. Students need to learn and practice social skills for a variety of situations to be socially and academically successful.


2. Learning is Social Students retain new social and academic lessons better when there is a positive social competent. Having fun when learning leads to more meaning, deeper and more lasting learning.


3. Clear Community Norms Build Strong Communities Social skills as well as academic success happens faster in a supportive school community that teaches clear, positive and action-oriented expectations.


4. Scaffolded Learning Academic social or any other type of learning takes time. Social and academic skills must be practiced. Using phased in, incremental learning with the right amount of practice, moves students progressively toward stronger understanding and, ultimately, greater independence in the learning process.


5. Different Ages – Different Stages Students have different academic and social needs at various times of their lives. Understanding and working with these needs is as important as the information that students need to learn.

6. Students Have to Be in It, To Win It Learning is not passive. Students learn best when they active and involved in creating their own understanding and meaning. 


7. Adults Are Part of The Team Trust between students and adults and adults and adults is needed for positive academic and social growth. Students learn better when adults demonstrate to students s that they are working as a team on behalf of the students.

Making the Change – Every Student is Engaged in Learning

Principles Put into Practice


In the halls, on the bus, in classes and the lunchroom, here are the tools to improve school climate, build relationships and stop the bullying. 


Morning Meeting Time – Picture your students, working together to build community, social skills and a desire to learn. During morning meeting time students practice greeting each other, sharing goals and strategies and bonding together as a community.

 

Setting the Tone for the Day – Watch your students set goals and learn how to breakdown tasks into manageable chunks. Mindfulness rituals are used to set students up for a happier, more positive day.


Mastering New Routines and Transitions – New routines and transitions are hard for students. Here is a 5 step that minimizes distractions and maximizes academic social learning.


Fun Ways to Practice Routines to Prevent Returning to Old Habits – Social skills are like any new skill, they need to be practiced. Transitions and routines are practiced in a fun and interactive way that builds positive and lasting classroom traditions.


Improve School Climate with Effective, Respect Communication - Positive body language empowering choice of words and effective self-regulation techniques, all need to come together to support assertive social interactions. Students learn the language and social skills needed to troubleshoot problems before they have a chance to become bigger situations.


Differentiated Instruction and Scaffolded Learning - Effective teaching is all about providing all students with multiple paths to learning. These lessons are designed to be meaningful for students of all ability levels. 


Emotional Management, Self-Regulation and Play - Playing with others and working with a group are important parts of a child’s development. Self-regulation and learning to interpret social cues are necessary interpersonal skills. Sharing, taking turns, and working together are better learned in group play. Students will have fun in a group setting while practicing patience, empathy, and other necessary social skills.
