The 4th annual Sophomore Respect Retreat was held Friday September 21st. To facilitate this day Lewis Central once again partnered with Youth Frontiers, a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis. Their vision is to change the way young people treat each other in every hallway, cafeteria, and classroom of every school in America so that today’s young people make tomorrow’s world better.

During the Respect Retreat, the Youth Frontiers retreat staff focused on creating a more positive school community by engaging students in a variety of activities that build students’ confidence, sense of self-worth and empathy. The activities and discussion all center around respect and teaching safe ways to help prevent bullying. Youth Frontiers has four goals that drive the retreat. First, enhance social-emotional learning competencies like empathy and conflict resolution. Second, Connect students to classmates, teachers and school. Third, challenge students to act with kindness, courage, and respect. Finally, engage learners of all styles and backgrounds.

The learning is not limited to our sophomore class. Junior and senior leaders are trained to work alongside with the staff to engage the younger students in the activities and guide small group discussions on topics of respect and kindness.

The Respect Retreat also supports Lewis Central High School’s three Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support pillars of success: Respect, Responsibility and Initiative.

We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to the Lewis Central Foundation for their support of this significant event.
