Lessons for Students

Lessons for Students iconLessons for Studentstitle

At Rock Creek, we take the safety and well being of our students very seriously and continue to implement programs, curriculum and philosophies that assist students in their day to day interactions with others.
 
This year we have implemented "In Focus" Mindfulness curriculum in which teachers take 10 min every day to teach students mindfulness. The curriculum used is research based and used as a guide to the teachers as they work with their students on their daily lessons.
 
In addition, we have implemented a Conflict Resolution program that focuses on teaching all students (TK-6) a unified approach to interacting with students in the classroom, cafeteria and on the playground. To review this approach of "Enough, Walk & Talk", please visit the links below for the 2 lessons that we taught to students. 
Thank you in advance for your reinforcement at home regarding the proper way to handle situations that arise with other students. As you know, not everyone is always going to be agree with each other yet it is our responsibility to teach students the proper way to have discourse.
