The “Four C’s” Reflect a common set of values held by our community.  They were developed through the strategic planning process in which we gathered input from our students, staff, administration, and community.Character - statementCharacter - we will hold

We have a responsibility to model the character traits we expect of our students as well as other adults.  We should model appropriate ways to solve problems, communicate with others, and how we conduct ourselves while living in community.  Key traits to model include, but are not limited to: integrity, honesty, respect, caring, kindness, discipline.We have a responsibility to teach core values and character traits to our students.  These are accomplished through teaching direct teaching lessons, school assemblies and programs, and seizing the moments.
We have a responsibility to help students develop a work ethic which will serve them well as they prepare to grow and enter a workforce.  A work ethic is developed over time with appropriate responsibilities for their age.  As students build stamina, they will position themselves to accept greater responsibility.
We have the responsibility to use corrective discipline to shape positive behaviors and responses in all situations.  As students learn to live in a school community, they will also learn the norms of engaging with others in a productive and positive manner.  Corrective discipline often has a consequence, restitution and an education.  A consequence is given for an inappropriate behavior.   Restiution is made when we have hurt or wronged another.  Education provides a students with the information to assist them in learning a more appropriate action or behavior.
