• Promising Practices 2012 National Award Winner


    Congratulations to both AWR and Salt Brook Schools who were recently selected as National “Promising Practices” award winners for 2012.

    The Promising Practice Awards “showcase so many creative and unique ways of dealing with challenges educators face each day,” said Lisa Greeves, manager of the Promising Practices program. “CEP is proud to recognize these educators and to give them an international platform upon which to share their hard work.”

    The New Providence programs were selected from a record-breaking 537 applications from schools, districts, and organizations across the United States, as well as from Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, and Mexico.

    Allen W. Roberts School's practice of AWR Pride “Manners Matters” Luncheon, where buddy classes ate lunch together and discussed and practiced manners, was chosen as one of the winners.

    Salt Brook received their award for their "Stand Up Community Flag” Program and the “Wii Play Program: Contemporary Social Skills”.

    Our programs will continue to serve as a model for others to possibly replicate and integrate into their character education initiatives.
