Respect, Civility and Responsible Citizenship


Responsible citizenship involves appropriate participation in the civic life of the school community.  Active and engaged citizens are aware of their rights, but more importantly, they accept responsibility for protecting their rights and the rights of others.


All students, parents, teachers, and staff members have the right to be safe, and to feel safe, in their school community.  With this right, comes the responsibility to contribute to a positive school climate.
