Culture, Character, and Being Juniper!
Habits of the Heart
Character building through specific, school-wide traits and positive behaviors that are explicitly taught, recognized, and reflected on by students, staff, and stakeholders:
Respect • Responsibility • Gratitude • Authenticity • Courage • Perseverance
At The Juniper School, we use Restorative Justice Practices as part of our school community and culture. It shapes our MTSS process, including Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 behaviors. Our classrooms incorporate connection circles and peacemaking circles into their daily routine. Using Restorative Justice Practices helps us balance all parts of who we are as people.
The Restorative Approach supports relationship building and problem-solving. We do this by:
- Developing a plan of action
- Getting acquainted
- Addressing issues and visions
- Building understanding and Trust
