Kids at Hope
Kids at Hope is an innovative concept which states and demonstrates that all children are capable of success, NO EXCEPTIONS! Kids at Hope is not another program; it is first and foremost a belief system, supported by a cultural strategy and then enhanced by programs. Kids at Hope’s vision is that every child is afforded the belief, guidance and encouragement that creates a sense of hope and optimism, supported by a course of action needed to experience success at life’s four major destinations: Home & Family; Education & Career; Community & Service; and Hobbies & Recreation. Kids at Hope inspires, empowers and transforms schools, organizations serving youth and entire communities to create an environment and culture where all children experience success, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Restorartive Practices increase student connectedness, build community, and address behavioral infractions. Utlizing restorative practices helps to build and strengthen school climate and to address harm in ways that hold students accountable and create an honorable pathway back to the community. Some restorative practices include:
Community-Building Circles create regular connecting opportunities for students and staff
Five Restorative Questions help students reflect on, and learn from, their actions
Responsive Circles help students and staff address harm and work together to repair the harm and create an honorable pathway back to the community
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The goal of PBIS is to aid in improving student academic and behavior outcomes and ensuring all students have access to the most effective and accurately implemented instructional and behavioral practices and interventions possible. PBIS provides an operational framework for achieving these outcomes. More importantly, PBIS is NOT a curriculum, intervention, or practice, but IS a decision making framework that guides selection, integration, and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioral practices for improving important academic and behavior outcomes for all students.
The House System
The purpose of House System is to:
Increase cross grade level connections
Encourage positive behavior and expectations
Promote healthy competition
Multiple times a year students will take part in house celebrations, and will be awarded House Points for exhibiting characteristics of the Mighty 7. The four houses are Reveur, Amistad, Altruismo, and Isibindi. Students, teachers, and staff members will be divided amongst the four houses. Students will learn the characteristics of each house and engage in team building exercises throughout the school year.
The Mighty 7 are social and behavioral expectations that teachers explicitly teach and model throughout the school day.
The Mighty 7 are as follow:
1. Stand to speak.
2. Acknowledge others by greeting them.
3. Respecfully respond to adults.
4. Celebrate others' successes.
5. Make eye contact.
6. Honesty is the best policy.
7. Keep our school community clean
