Beliefs   We believe learning requires active, productive and meaningful student and educator engagement;  that individuals learn best through their strengths in a variety of ways and in different learning environments; that individuals learn best when empowerment, freedom, fun and a sense of belonging are an integral part of the learning environments; in valuing diversity and treating one another with honesty, dignity and respect; that parents, students, teachers and community share the responsibility for student achievement.   Revised by District Improvement Team and approved by Board of Education 12/09/08
