We practice kindness, take care of each other, and stand by everyone in our community to ensure that they feel welcomed and safe, and that their identity is honored.

    Your children make us proud every day. We are thankful for your commitment to their educaiton, and for your support as we continue to do our best to serve our students.

    Nuestra facultad promete crear un ambiente educativo seguro donde cada individuo se siente valorado, respetado, y con derechos. Palabras negativas o hirientes no serán toleradas en nuestra escuela. Vamos a demostrar amabilidad, y nos vamos a apoyar los unos a los otros para que cada miembro de esta escuela se sienta bienvenido y seguro, y su identidad sea honrada.

    Estamos orgullosos de sus hijos e hijas cada dia. Les agradecemos su dedicación a sus educación, y su apoyo mientras seguimos haciendo lo mejor posible por nuestros estudiantes.
