PRIDE Connections Program:
PRIDE Connections builds on character education that is fundamentally inherent in the psycho-social development of middle school children. This is a teacher-led instructional program focussing on positive interactions and healthy relationship building. There will be instruction on conflict resolution skills. Each month, staff and students will focus on a different positive character trait and how a person's choices (actions and words) can make a difference and impact those around them.
