WELCOME BACK WILDCATS!

We are so excited about the successful start we've had to this school year and are extremely proud of everyone for helping us ensure a safe environment for our students and staff. We must all continue to be diligent in our efforts to maintain a safe face-to-face learning environment. Please wear masks when social distancing isn't possible and continue to practice good hygiene. We want to say thank you for being patient and flexible as we work through new processes across campus.

CHARACTER WORD OF THE MONTH

During the month of September, we will be introducing and promoting the character trait of RESPECT.

Big picture

Being respectful of others, being respected, and respecting ourselves increases our self-esteem, self-efficacy, mental health, and well-being.


Respect is learning to tolerate, not discriminate, and avoid actions that may offend others. Some examples of consideration in everyday life are: greeting or speaking to others in a kind and respectful way, giving up your seat in public places, treating others as you would like them to treat you, etc.


One student from each grade level will be recognized at the end of the month for demonstrating respect!
