PATHS Program

PATHS® Program Objectives and Goals

 

The PATHS® program is an elementary school curriculum that has been shown to significantly improve children's social and emotional skills. Social and emotional competence is a master skill that underlies both effective behavior and academic success.

 

The PATHS program covers these five domains of social and emotional development:

• self-control
• emotional understanding
• positive self-esteem
• relationships 
• interpersonal problem-solving skills.

 

The PATHS program brings students through each of these domains in stages. While some of the units from the PATHS program target one or more of the domains, aspects of all five are integrated into each unit.

 

Here is a great website with more information about the program!

OUTDOOR CLASSROOM

With the help of some great people and good insight ACES now has an outdoor classroom for all students to enjoy! Marci Ernst, Phys. Ed. and Reading Recovery teacher put a lot of extra time and effort into obtaining a grant to get the project off the ground. The Municipality of Chester and the South Shore Regional School Board were very helpful and supportive of it and many thanks goes out to Moving Your Earth Construction Ltd. in Fox Point as well as South Shore Sand and Gravel in Chester who made donations of time, equipment, and material to make the project a reality. Here are some photos taken since the classroom opened.
