St. John Paul II Catholic School uses the Boys Town Social Skill Curriculum and Love and Logic philosophy school wide to establish an atmosphere throughout the school in which children feel safe, happy, and, in addition, have the maximum opportunity to learn. Our ulitmate goal is to teach students to choose responsible behavior based on Catholic morals and values, thus raising their self-esteem and increasing their academic success. For more information about Love and Logic, please refer to the St. John Paul II Student Handbook.
Our Love and Logic Core Beliefs
* We believe students should be guided and expected to solve the problems they create without making a problem for anyone else.
*We believe students should be given the opportunity to make decisions and live with the results whether the consequences are good or bad.
*We believe misbehavior should be handled with natural consequences instead of punishment whenever possible.
*We believe each student should have the opportunity to tell his/her side of the story when consequences appear to be unfair.
*We believe misbehavior should be viewed as an opportunity for individual problem-solving and real-world preparation as opposed to a personal attack against the school or staff.
* We believe there should be a logical connection between misbehavior and resulting consequences.
*We believe every attempt should be made to maintain the dignity of both the adult and the student.
