Students are encouraged to participate in at least one service project per 9 weeks. Service forms can be found in the office or in homeroom classrooms. Please return Service Learning forms to Mrs. Wheeler. Remember, service is a component for earning a CARES certificate, joining Jr. Beta Club and it helps your team!

January Core Essential- Knowledge

Knowledge is learning something new so you can be better at whatever you do.

January is a time when many people reflect and set goals for the near or distant future. When helping a child set a goal, SMART is the acronym to keep in mind. Help your child develop a goal that is:

S- specific

M- measurable

A- achievable

R- relevant

T- time-bound

What new knowledge does your child need to meet his or her goal?

January Precept

"Love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning." Carol Dweck


The E in CARES stands for encouraging discovery. We encourage students to discover new and thought-provoking knowledge inside the classroom and outside of the classroom by participating in extracurricular activities. Part of discovery is making mistakes and learning from them. Sometimes students worry about failing, so they hesitate to try new activities or start a project. As adults, we can help them overcome this by helping them develop a growth mindset.
