LIFELONG GUIDELINES AND LIFESKILLS

     Lifelong guidelines and lifeskills are used to help our children grow in character and personal values.  Here at New Providence Elementary, we want to ensure that our students become successful human beings, personally, socially,  and economically.  We believe that preparing children to become citizens who contribute to society is an important goal.
