Caring School Community 2017-2018

This year, Lane School staff’s all school focus is on building and supporting a caring school community.  Each day in the classroom and throughout campus, students will participate and practice care for self and others. The curriculum is founded on the principles to support each student’s:

  • sense of belonging among their peers, their family and the adults in the school community
  • sense of autonomy, with a voice in what’s happening in their community
  • sense of competence and the notion that they are appreciated and valued in the community for the unique gifts they have to offer.

The staff at Lane School are confident that the Caring School Community curriculum and resources, will enrich our program for the coming year.

Compassion and Caring at Lane School

 

Lane School Staff comes into the 2017-2018 school year ready to practice, model and support a Caring School Community. Our teaching staff used the Inside Outside Circle to practice active listening- a core component of a caring school community.
