Lifeskills

Tools for Citizenship and life:

Lifelong Guidelines provide consistent parameters and expectations for conduct in our classrooms as well as on our entire Williams campus. They also ensure that all students are in an environment that encourages exploring, discovering. and learning.“PERSONAL BEST” is defined by 18 LIFESKILLS. One or two LIFESKILLS will be introduced throughout our school each month. Students will arrive at common understandings of the meaning of each LIFESKILLS, and learn how to practice them.
