Team Unity

It's fun to walk around the building and see the teams begin to make their mark on the school. In the 8th grade hallway, you can see teams taking on their world landmark identities. In the 6th and 7th grade areas, students are establishing their place in our school community through personal get-to-know-you activities. All of your time and effort around building and creating these activities are building relationships and establishing team unity.
