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.

Thiss week, our team would like to give a special shout out to one of our students. We would like to highlight the hard work and dedication that John has done in our boy scout class! Here he is showing us his hard earned patches!
On November 16th, 2016. We will have a Harvest Celebration. The kids of the after school program will put on a performance about being thankful for their parents and Guardians. After the performance we are going to have an abundance of food to share with everyone.
This Month our Youth Workers are on a mission to use their student voice! They are researching new art activities for the entire agency that they believe the students will enjoy!
We would like to thank all of the Parents who came out to the Parent meeting last week. We greatly appreciate your donations you made to the program.
