Good Community ... for today, tomorrow and into the future



What are we doing?

Each week we explicitly teach a key

"Good Community" concept.

The concepts are put into practice by playing games.

The games we play develop and habituate socially

effective and culturally appropriate  patterns of



Why are we doing this?

*To create a safe learning environment in which students train to be independent

self regulating, self-motivated learners in persistent pursuit of their personal best

and able to get along with each other.


*To develop students of strong character and decency with the social and emotional

competencies to live and learn well.


*To foster empathetic students, considerate of themselves, each other and the

world in which they live with sound and good reasons for the things they say and do.
