Core Values


Harrison Goodstone showed KINDNESS when he volunteered to help Mrs. Chester do lab preparation for EvoGen during advisory!

Asa Drudge showed RESPECT and KINDNESS when he took the initiative to offer help when he saw a teacher carrying a heavy load of bags and books across campus.

Mary Palmer showed KINDNESS when she stopped to help a puppy in the middle of a busy road and return her to her worried family.

Thank you to Brent Chandler, Jackson McKillip, Jack Bullock, Daniel Huang, and Sean Groarke for staying and helping load the tents and coolers from today’s Cross Country meet. They were a huge help and showed KINDNESS and TEAMWORK!
