As a way to continue to improve academics, the students at Cedar Ridge Academy Therapeutic Private Boarding School practice writing different genres. These genres include essays, short stories, narratives, reflections, and newsletter columns. These newsletter columns are published to The Cedar Spectrum, the school's student newsletter. These stories are also often published to the blog as well. This column was published in our most recent issue.
|Girls decorate for the 4th of July.|
I enjoy living in the Ombu home for multiple reasons. The ones that stand out to me the most is that everyone in this home cares about each other’s emotional safety and well-being. The second reason is that these girls are supportive of one another’s progress with the program. Something I find unique about the foundation of building friendships with each girl is that we all hold each other accountable for actions and call each other out on our wrong doings and right doings. Feedback in the Ombu home towards one another is something that we value because it serves a purpose to better that particular person and help them become more mindful of the things they are doing right and the things that aren’t necessarily the healthiest for them to be doing in the first place. By far I believe that the relationships that I am making here will last once outside of Cedar Ridge Academy.
