March Parent Calendar

A printed copy of the March calendar has been sent home with our students. It has also been posted to our website on the homepage and in the calendar section.

Character Counts - Respect

March's Character Trait of the Month for elementary students is Respect. K-5 students who show respect treat others with respect and follow the Golden Rule. They are tolerant and accepting of differences. Those students use good manners, not bad language. They are considerate of the feelings of others and don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone. Respectful students deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements.

IB Learner Attribute - Inquirers

The Leaner Attribute of the month for our MYP students is having our learners strive to be Inquirers. Students that develop their natural curiosity, acquire the skills necessary to conduct inquiry and research and show independence in learning are Inquirers. They actively enjoy learning, and this love of learning will be sustained throughout their lives.
