2 LifeskillsThe basis for positive behavior at R.P.E.S. is our school’s Lifeskills Program. Students work on the human qualities in the classroom and outside in the playground. The Lifeskills will be discussed and practiced daily in the classroom and outside of the classroom as well. As a school, we will be focusing on 5 lifeskills:Caring: To feel and show concern for others.Respect: To give particular attention and high or special regard.Courage- To have the strength to do what’s right.Determination- To not give up on your goalResponsibility: To respond appropriately, to be accountable for your actions.Honors are given away to students who are seen following the lifeskills, and entered in a raffle.
