We believe that when working with elementary children discipline rather than a punitive frame of reference is most desirable. Discipline is meant to teach (route of disciple = teacher). If students are to achieve their potential as learners, they need to have a safe and secure environment in which to develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.
A Caring & Respectful Environment
Sundance School implements programs (such as the Virtues Project and Zones of Regulation) to provide students with universal strategies to address conflict and/or bullying. Weekly announcements and class meetings reinforce ‘Virtue’ and ‘Zones’ messages shared with students. We also support school presentations and initiatives that teach and practice
respect and caring for others. All members of the Sundance community (students, parents, school staff) have a role and shared responsibility to create our safe, respectful and caring environment.
