PES Core Beliefs

  • Everyone is of value and has a gift to share.
  • We each learn at a different pace.
  • Everyone deserves a quality education.
  • Relationships are key.
  • Teaching the whole child is essential.
  • Every child deserves a fair chance.


Teacher Advisory Council discussed this week that a noticeable difference had occurred in transition times outside as requested in last week's In the Know. Thank you for helping contribute to that outcome - Keep it up in the coming weeks as we all get a little friskier!
