Student & Family Resources

Here are handy links to some key resources and documents to help you find your way. Please reach out to staff members at any time with any additional questions you may have.

School Tool

Schooltool provides easy access to current information to keep students and parents informed and connected to teachers and staff. With Schooltool you can easily e-mail teachers with a click of a button, access grades, in-progress averages, and assignment grades as well as view attendance and discipline history for your student.

Student Handbook

The Student Handbook describes how our mission and vision translate into practice. It is intended to be a starting point, and each year our growth and development as a school community will be reflected in this document. Addendums of the Handbook will be published as needed to keep you abreast of our development.

Graduation Requirements

Our core academic courses focus on four traditional subject areas: science, social studies, literacy, and mathematics. Students gain essential skills and knowledge while investigating critical sustainability and social justice questions and themes. Traditional learning will dovetail with a “whole earth approach” to motivate students to use their education to make concrete changes in their communities.

Curriculum Overview

 

New Roots students engage in a four-year sequence of courses in each core curriculum area: Science, Mathematics, Social Studies, and English. Themes and essential questions provide opportunities for integration across disciplines. Interdisciplinary community-based projects draw on all core subject areas, with arts instruction infused throughout the curriculum.

Farm to School Meal Program

meal program, every day!
