We are committed to providing a safe, caring and nurturing learning environment for our community of learners. Our staff focuses on three strategies for success, “Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible”, we take a proactive systems approach toward developing responsible citizens and lifelong learners. Bee chips are given to students to recognize and encourage the positive behaviors we want to see from students. We have a weekly drawing and students are recognized for their efforts in being safe, respectful and responsible individuals.
