Community Connections

Community Connections is an opportunity for all students in the Intermediate School to gather together once a month and learn about different civic organizations and topics.

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the program is to help build the intermediate school’s sense of community while enhancing academic performance. We hope to achieve this goal by modeling and reinforcing proper behavior and expanding our curriculum through supplemental activities designed to improve students’ thinking, listening and speaking skills.

Things to remember
