In Greater Clark and at Maple Elementary, we believe all students need to learn and master the soft skills necessary to succeed in school and in life. As a result, we have created a PRIDE program that teaches and positively reinforces Persistence, Respectfulness, Initiative, Dependability, and Efficiency to all of our students on a daily basis from preschool through 12th grade. The PRIDE program was developed by a team of educators in cooperation with business and community leaders. The goal of PRIDE is to build students of strong character that will not only strengthen our school district, but eventually our entire community.
The PRIDE rubric is used by teachers to score students’ show of PRIDE for each quarter.
