- A zest for learning is evident when you walk into our classrooms and see our students fully engaged in rigorous activities.
- Endurance is shown when you hear our students working hard to learn to speak, read, and write in Spanish.
- New ideas come to life daily in our art, music, and technology classes.
- Integrity is heard in the voices of our students who learn from their mistakes by telling the truth no matter what.
- Teamwork can be seen when our Rising STARs work together, encouraging each other during Playworks game time and recess.
- Humanity is shown when we give at our annual food and toy drives.
