Our school believes that to do well in school, students need to be comfortable with who they are and feel physically and emotionally safe.  in this effort to create a safe and caring culture, we are bringing in Youth Frontiers to facilitate a Wisdom Retreat.
Since 1987 Youth Frontiers, a nonpartisan, non profit organization based in Minneapolis, has been partnering with schools to build positive communities where students can thrive socially, emotionally and academically.  Their vision is to change the way young people treat each other in every hallway, lunch line and classroom of every school in America so that today's young people make tomorrow's world better.  last year, Youth Frontiers worked with nearly 100,000 students and educators throughout the country.
On the Wisdom Retreat, the Youth Frontiers retreat staff will focus on creating a more positive community by engaging students in a variety of activities that reflect on their high school experience and commit to leaving a positive legacy of respect at school.
This high-energy, interactive retreat is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28th for the 12th grade class and will be held at St. Andrews - Youth and Sports Center.  We encourage parents and caregivers to inquire about the retreat experience once the student returns home by asking the following questions:
1) What was your favorite part of the day?
2) Did you see any of your classmates in a new way?
3) How will you use the lesson of your high school experience moving forward?
