    Our school is committed to being a Bully Free School Zone! We encourage our students to cooperate with each other and to be model citizens for their school and community. Our students are taught if they see something wrong, they must speak up and say something to someone. Please continue to support your child at home by talking to them about respect, diversity and positive behaviors.
