Learning how to be good citizens is just as important as learning the reading, math, science, social studies curriculum our students focuses on throughout the year. In our reach toward that goal, our students are embarking on a rigorous character education curriculum that focus on the good citizenship with an anti-bullying and anti-drug component designed to encourage our students to be respectful of each other, themselves, and their bodies. The fruits of that labor can be seen in the students of this school through our clubs like FCA, TRU, and Girls on track, through all of the sports teams that encourage team work and sportsmanship, and in our monthly character breakfast.
The character breakfast is a time when students who consistently exemplify â€œARRRGH!â€ (Always Respectful, Responsible, Resourceful, Giving and Honest) are honored by the school. Students are nominated by their teachers. Those who have earned this honor receive a certificate and are invited along with their families to share a pancake breakfast.
We are so proud of our pirates, and it is our joy to recognize the traits we want to see in this generation. We know that these students will continue to make us proud, and we hope that this event will serve as an incentive to other students to strive to be the citizens we know they can be.
