The guidance program is developed to promote positive character traits in each of our students. Topics will include many subjects including bullying, violence, abuse, suicide and drug prevention. Throughout the guidance lessons there will also be a focus on self-confidence development, decision-making, interpersonal effectiveness, communication skills, cross-cultural effectiveness and responsible behavior. These are skills that our students will take into adulthood. Please reinforce these concepts at home as we work together to provide an incredible educational year for your child.
