Weekly School Newsletter
Our school's newsletter will be used to communicate important information, upcoming school events, and dates. Reading the school newsletter is an expectation of our professional responsibilities. Take time each week to internalize the information in the newsletter before you arrive on Monday mornings.
Core Value of the Month
“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” ~ Albert Einstein
A sense of community will be an essential element in providing students with a meaningful education. Therefore shared rituals will play a powerful role in creating the largest school community in which the smaller, personalized communities of learners can exist. In addition to a strong sense of school community, students will also be filled with a broader sense of community. They will develop a personal obligation to work to improve their school and society. Through their commitment to the school and the larger community students will learn that their talents and knowledge become long lasting and more meaningful when they are shared with others.
