Show Your Stripes!

 

  •  These core values align well with our current community rules, and will be used to continue to enhance the development of a caring and respectful learning community.
    • The first letters of our new core values of Sincerity, Teamwork, Respect, Inclusion, Perseverance, Empathy, and Service spell out an acrostic mnemonic of “STRIPES.”  Throughout the year, we will encourage our students and staff to “Show their Stripes!”  Please continue to read the document below for a more detailed definition of our core values.
