Every member of the learning community is a teacher. They teach by example and they are in a unique position to teach children about healthy relationships by providing the help specific to their role.

Every member of the school community, at some time, will be called upon to help a child who is experiencing difficulties. Many of these children come to school every day from homes impacted by alcohol or other drug problems.
