Principal’s Message

Please join us on Monday, February 11th for the Barbara Coloroso presentation. Parent Council has used the Parent Reaching Out grant to help fund this amazing opportunity. Reserve your free tickets.

The character attribute for the month of February is Perseverance. Perseverance is defined as the ability to demonstrate continuous effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition. Students can demonstrate perseverance at school by:

  • staying with the task and not giving up.
  • trying again and again and again.
  • showing pride and a positive commitment to
    completing tasks.

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it”.

-Maya Angelou
