Culture and Climate

At Chute Middle School, we know that building connections and relationships is essential in developing a strong and productive school community. We believe we have a responsibility to not only provide strong academic instruction but teach social emotional skills as well as executive functioning skills. We do so by taking a restorative practices approach that are built on foundations of being responsible, respectful, and STEPping up to be successful. Below are some of the strategies we use to promote our Culture and Climate:

    • Culture Celebration Days: BSU, LatinX, AEAC

    • All School Events: Winter Wolves Game, Family Feud, Field Day
