New Traditions has an outdoor "classroom" that teachers use to educate their students on a full range of lessons. The goal is to connect the children to the natural world through hands-on learning in our school gardens and spark their interest in science.
Students have 2 full days of library enrichment: Thursday and Friday. Students in the lower grades visit the library every week for 30 minutes, while upper grades visit every week for 45 minutes. Judy L. Viertel is the Teacher-Librarian at New Traditions.
Teachers, students & parents gather at the start of each school day as a way to build community. During this time, parents mingle and learn about upcoming events, staff recognize achievements (aka Dragon Scales), and students move their body through guided "Morning Movement".
