Check & Connect **NEW THIS YEAR**

Mentoring program where the mentor connects with the family and the student on a regular basis. This is to improve the feeling of belonging for the student and reduce the rate of drop-out.


We will select students based on counselor referrals, dojo, observations from teacher & administration, and parent request.

Positive Action ** NEW THIS YEAR **

Curriculum purchased through the ESSC Grant. This is a proven effective program. The kits include lessons, activities, and parent lessons as well. We will incorporate this into our "guidance" specials in Kindergarten, First, and Second.
