Because our school is committed to your child’s wellness, we will be using the Prevention and Awareness for Total Health (PATH) curriculum which is a school-wide approach to address mandated topics and strengthen character education. We believe that schools and families must work together for the betterment of the whole child, and communication is key. We are excited to share this information with you as we use PATH to empower students to make choices that will protect their safety and create life-long physical and mental health. The purpose of this comprehensive prevention curriculum is to concentrate on critical prevention areas and expand into additional life skills and character traits. We desire for our students to be well equipped with life-long skills which will help them combat challenges, protect physical health and safety, foster kindness, enhance relationships, promote mental wellness, maintain perspective, employ positive coping skills and model resilience. We want our students to do more than survive – we want them to thrive!
