“We want students to value belonging, their own well-being, tolerance, compassion, listening to their peers and adults in their lives, using non-violent ways to respond to difficult scenarios, being inclusive, being their best selves and working together. We hope that this will help us have positive, healthy and meaningful relationships with all of our students. This will help create the learning partnership necessary for students to be comfortable taking risks. We want students to value belonging to our classes, to our grade and to our school.”
