No Dogs allowed on School grounds

Please do not bring dogs on school grounds before, during, and after school hours when students are on campus. Even if your dog is leashed and friendly, it can still pose a risk in that the nature of animals can be unpredictable, and we also have students who are allergic to them.

We appreciate your help in keeping our students safe!

From the Couselor's Corner

This month we’re talking about the character trait of Respect. The dictionary defines it as the value of admiring another person for who they are and what they do. The definition we are using in class is:

Respect: seeing good in people and things (and treating them with care).

We are also talking about Respect in the context of using good manners, not using inappropriate or offensive language, being courteous to one another, resolving conflicts peacefully, and treating one another as we would want to be treated (and how they want to be treated!).
