The Pillars are enriched with activities and resources that celebrate the treasures of the various cultures represented by our school population. 

The month-by-month curriculum includes:

  • Definition of the "virtue" exemplified by each pillar

  • Student of the Week categories for each theme

  • Relevant quotations with background information and resources

  • Video clips to prompt discussion, including teacher guides

  • Poems,songs, essays, stories, biographies of exemplary individuals, and Reader's Theater scripts

  • Basic language samples representing the cultures of our community

Families are encouraged to participate in the Pillars program by discussing the concepts with their children, sharing their ideas, and taking part in school-wide activities.
