Learner Profile Trait for February ~ Open-minded
Barry Goldwater is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. As such we aspire to fulfill the traits embodied in the Learner Profile. Each month we will highlight and celebrate one of these traits.
The Learner Profile trait for February is Open-Minded.
We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
The Learner Profile Quote is: “What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Your child may qualify for free or for reduced priced meals! DVUSD has waived the reduced price meal co-pay for both breakfast and lunch this year so those qualifying will also receive meals at no cost.
