Safe and healthy school climate
All students and staff at Fernbrook participate in SOAR, our schoolwide positive behavior framework. SOAR stands for:
- Show self-control;
- Own your actions;
- Aim for success; and
- Respect self, others and property
We believe in teaching and reinforcing these behaviors; they are what we expect every day from all members of the Fernbrook Elementary community.
Strong community partnerships support and enhance learning for all Fernbrook scholars. Some of our partners include:
- Minnesota Reading Corps/Math Corps tutors
- University of Northwestern student teachers
- Our strong and active Parent-Teacher Organization
In addition, our school community comes together every year for the Fernbrook Walk for the Cure. Since 2001, this annual event has raised nearly $186,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
