  • About New Traditions Creative Arts Elementary School

    At New Traditions, we strive to be a place where every child is supported in their learning and where every child is treated with respect and care. In order to provide the best possible education, our community comes together to provide students with skills to become lifelong learners through a well balanced curriculum. We will continue to create an environment and culture that is both student-centered and solution based.

    We take pride in ourselves as a community that focuses on creative, meaningful, and rigorous instruction. We consistently prioritize the Arts and we recognize the positive effects of a well rounded education. Our parent community is actively involved and invested in the development of our students’ academic and social skills.

    At New Traditions, we view each incident of conflict as an opportunity for learning. Our Positive Behavior System asks our students to examine their own actions and evaluate how those actions affect others in our community. We begin every school day with a morning circle that emphasizes our promises to Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful.
