WHAT SETS US APART
Queen Alexandra M.S. started a program at our school to support at-risk students through our “One Caring Adult” (OCA) program. To initiate the program, teachers put forward names of students who are at risk for any number of reasons. Adults in the building who wish to participate in the OCA program are matched with these students. Together, the adults and students plan their meeting schedule – whether it’s help with homework after school, or 10 minutes weekly to clean out a locker. Each schedule looks different depending on the needs of the student. The Caring Adult becomes a safe and caring “touch stone” adult for the student. The OCA program is currently in its second year of operation and is still going strong. Queen Alexandra uses twitter to communicate regularly with students and parents: @queenA_ms
