From The Principal Tony White.......
This quote from the IIRP founder, Ted Wachtel, sums it up perfectly: "The fundamental premise of restorative practices is that people are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes when those in authority do things WITH them rather than TO them or FOR them."
You'll hear me say (and may have heard me say a hundred times before) that "every kid deserves a great place to learn, and every adult deserves a great place to work." We owe it to our students and ourselves to make Norton Creek amazing, and if we're going to make this school the school of our dreams that everyone deserves, it's not a me thing...it's a we thing.
And that's the secret to Norton Creek's success really...and we haven't "arrived" yet. We're going to keep growing and learning. But, any success we've had so far has been due to our continued focus on going WITH one another, working together, and builidng partnerships that last well beyond an Eagle's time here at Norton Creek.
Thank you for your trust in our school and each of us that work here to serve our Eagles. It's an amazing responsbility and an even more awesome privilege. None of this is work we take lightly, but it's also work we don't do alone. It is our pleasure and honor to partner with you in service of each of our Eagles. There is nothing like the opportunity to begin again, and that fresh start and renewal is part of the magic of the first day of school. Thank you for being the best partners a school could ask for, and let's make 2022-2023 the best school year yet. TOGETHER.
