Why do we have a PRIDE Program at Challenger?
The PRIDE Program at Challenger allows us to teach character and in turn to have a safe, caring, and effective school. Part of the success of a program such as this is the partnerships between parents and schools. As parents and educators it’s our desire for our children to become the best they can be. Not only to assist our students in growing up to be smart but also good, honest, decent citizens. In order to do this our kids need a strong work ethic, self-discipline, and perseverance in order to succeed in school and in life. They need character qualities such as respect and responsibility in order to have positive interpersonal relationships and live in a community.

The more time your kids spend online, the more they will see, watch, play, read, and interact. Educate yourself to ways to keep your kids safe.
