"Rise Up" is the 2021 Character Education Theme for New Providence School District, a National District of Character.
“RISE UP” is focused around perseverance, courage, and confidence.
"This simple, yet meaningful message empowers us all to “RISE UP”, look for the “Good News”, and find the determination and power from within to effect change. As the school year progresses, we will engage our students in meaningful activities that will give them the power to choose their own path. We will provide them with the skills, practice, courage, and confidence to persevere and grow. We will encourage the students to “RISE UP” and be part of solutions. We will guide them to “RISE UP” and choose to be positive. We will support them as they “RISE UP” and work to make a change. We will all look for the “Good News” around us and “RISE UP” as we inspire others to be kind and compassionate." (Jean Drexinger, Principal, Salt Brook School)
