During the school year, it is important for all of us to do our share in ensuring that our school is a safe, comfortable, and happy place to be! When we all work together, our school will really shine!

You can also demonstrate good character with 'Random Acts of Kindness'. Click here to learn more about becoming involved in community service.

“Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece — by thought, choice, courage and determination.”
- John Luther  

Character is the sum and total of a person’s choices.”
- P.B. Fitzwater
