I’m thrilled that my daughter is practicing how to assert her voice - we’re working on it at home as well, with the materials the school sends home. A healthy school culture is so much more than being orderly and following directions. Through Conscious Discipline students learn to act with respect and integrity, and to assert themselves to resolve disagreements, defuse bullying, and stand up for what’s right. Next steps for our students are Playworks for leadership and conflict resolution, and our Fifth Grade Girls Empowerment Group to help our young women prepare for the academic and personal challenges that await them in middle school.
