We will enforce our school’s rules while preserving each student’s dignity. We will communicate with parents regularly. We will abide by the highest standards of our profession. 

For Families - We will support our child’s learning by ensuring good attendance, monitoring homework, and communicating regularly with the school staff. We will encourage our child’s effort. We will help to maintain a good learning environment by supporting the faculty and staff as we mutually enforce the school’s rules. We will participate in decisions about our child’s education. 

For Students - I will do the best I can to succeed. I will respect the rights of other people. I will work to make my school a safe and pleasant place by following school rules and showing good behavior. I will ask for help when I need it.
