 APRIL Theme of the Month
Cooperation is working together for the good of everyone.  It is a willingness to respect others and to follow rules which keep everyone safe and happy.  When we cooperate, we can do great things.

March's Theme of the Month was INTEGRITY  
Integrity is standing up for what you believe is right.  It is being honest and sincere with others and yourself.  Without integrity, no one would be able to trust each other to do what they say they are going to do.  Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching.
Congratulations to our March Students of the Month! 
Alexandra Helberg, Cyrus Hoover, Ezra Roskam, Rylan Hanchey, Lilly Brakke, Jamee McKnight, Addisen Zink, Jesse Albecker, *Elli, Addison Cockrum, Axl Schomaker, Brayden Gentry, Kelsey O'Brien, Van McGarrigan, Alex Gilley, Diana Chau.
