Summer Citizenship Challenge
One of the many things I love about my job as principal is the opportunity to connect with so many students and see first-hand how their learning and growth play out in different areas of our school; how students interact with each other on the kickball fields, in the hallways and at after school events is very important to me. Just as our amazing staff takes great care to foster high levels of academic learning for our students, we also work very hard to support their overall development as people.
I’ve heard it said that “everything that can be counted doesn’t necessarily count, and everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.” There is no state standardized assessment or MCA that prioritizes being a good friend and neighbor, but a student’s character serves as the underpinnings of all they will do and who they can become. We approach their learning with the understanding that their capacity in the areas of citizenship, respect and caring can be developed. We thank you for your support and partnership in this as well.
Our school is continuing this partnership to promote positive character development in a fun family-friendly way. The final character trait of the school year is Citizenship. On May 31st we’ll take some time to highlight what this trait means at an all school Character Assembly, and share an exciting summer citizenship challenge that I hope each and every family connects with.

Thanks for ALL YOU DO to invest in our students. This awesome adventure called education truly takes a village, and we value your support!
