Monthly Equity Themes
Every Month we choose a new theme, and cover the campus in Equity.
Student learn about a diverse range of people who contribute to our amazing world. Our staff engages in ongoing professional development so that we may be effective educators for all our students, and so that our students graduate ready to navigate our beautiful and diverse world with kindness and agency.
Three Tiered Restorative Practice
Community Building. Community Repair. Restorative Conferencing.
Peninsula Union follows a three tiered Restorative Practice system so that students may learn from their mistakes and build a stronger community through circles.
On campus we practice mindfulness, gratitude, self regulation, and awareness of others.
In addition to teaching Common Core aligned academic and critical thinking skills, we teach our students to recognize their social and emotional needs, as well as a range of skills for meeting those needs effectively and responsibly.
A personal computer for each student
Our school provides a 1:1 tech program, where each student has access to an individual computer for accessing educational resources and completing assignments as needed.
At Peninsula Union, all students eat for free. Breakfast, lunch, supper and evening snack are cooked and prepped on site by our very own cook and nutrition specialist.
Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper.
Schools that provide breakfast to all students have shown decreases in tardiness and suspensions as well as improved student behavior and attentiveness.
What you eat for breakfast can have an impact on learning. One study showed that eating breakfast food high in fiber and low in sugar for breakfast helped students sustain the cognitive effects of breakfast. School Breakfast provides ¼ the recommended amounts of protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, and vitamin C for the day.
Eating breakfast can help improve math, reading, and standardized test scores.
