Code of Character Traits: P.A.R.K.
Over the next few weeks, you will hear more and more about Lake Bluff's character traits. In English, they make the acronym: P.A.R.K., or park! P.A.R.K. stands for perseverance, advocacy, respect, and kindness. It is a fun way to remember all of the areas where we can grow and help each other to be better humans and create a better world for everyone. Students are working together with teachers in their classroom crews to think about what these character traits look like, sound like, and feel like at school.
Can You Help? Translation and Interpretation Help Needed!
