WE ARE SITE OF THE YEAR FOR 2017!
New Highland/Rise Elementary is committed to encouraging, inspiring, uplifting, enlightening, and enriching our students as well as our staff. This is done by exposing them to different cultures and opportunities. Children are able to learn the art of cooking, dance, photography, sports, and many more. We are dedicated to see our children grow into resilient, intelligent, college educated members within our society.
The Solar Rays Program is structured in a way that all youth have a chance to have structured leadership opportunities (i.e., recycling monitor during snack). The program also works hard to create a positive emotional climate- welcoming each student by name when checking in, asking how they are doing, and structured reflection activities during most activities. Staff are also intentional about reminding youth about group agreements when youth are disobeying and framing it around community agreements.
