A SAFE PLACE
We believe in using Restorative Justice to build healthier communities, promote peace, and create a space to heal from stressful social situations.
Every week our communities gather to collaborate together to fulfill the mission by creating a welcoming atmosphere for our students, staff, and community.

Ms. Ivy Bell is our new Restorative Justice Coordinator. Please feel free to email if you have any questions, concerns, or needs. firstname.lastname@example.org
"In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can."
WHAT ARE CHECK INS, CHECK UPS, AND CHECK OUTS?
These circles can be used at the beginning of class or as a quick break in the middle of a class period. Using classroom circles gets student's engaged and participating! These circles not only help develop relationships that make teaching easier but also asked students to identify critical emotions currently impacting them such as: excited, sad, passionate, happy, content, fear, anger, hurt, or sad.
Check in: Use at the beginning of the week to gauge emotions being carried over from last week.
Check up: A mid-week circle to identify how the week is going.
Check out: Find out student's weekend plans and learn how the week has impacted them.
