Restorative Practices (Part 1)
Next week, I will describe our 4-step Restorative Practices plan in detail, but for now, I would like to share with you the programs and measures we have in place to prevent problems before they occur. You've likely heard the axiom, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Here at Wildwood, we find this to be true, and we are proud to highlight the proactive measures that are in place at our school which help keep physical and relational harm at a minimum on our campus:
- PTA Sponsored Events and Assemblies that Build Community
- A Proactive and Responsive Office Team
- Tremendous Teachers
- A Caring and Skilled Campus Supervision Team
- Parent Volunteers
- Engaging Lessons
- Unity Day (Oct.)
- Inclusive Schools Week (Dec.)
- Kindness Week (Feb.)
- SEL Lessons
- Counseling / Coaching
- Morning Greeters
- Pep Rallies
- Staff Training
- Tigerific Tickets
- ROAR Core Values
- Strong School-Home-Student Communication
- A Community Committed to Care
That's quite a list! We appreciate EVERY member of our our school community who contributes to the amazing culture of care that pervades our campus.

Phone Call Protocols for Students
For safety reasons, students may ONLY call home from the front office phone or health office phone. Students with cell phones MUST have them turned oﬀ and kept in a backpack at all times during the school day. Students with watches that have text or phone capabilities may not communicate with them during the school day. Students who violate these standards of conduct will lose the privilege of bringing these devices on campus.
