KNOW-HOW AND GOOD MANNERS
Our school is very special because we share it with each other:
our teachers and our principal, Anglophones and Francophones, together we are a really big family.
A positive attitude helps us to be happy at school and to be good learners. We show respect for others.
We are responsible students. We attend school because we want to socialize and be educated.
RALLY BEHIND THESE IDEALS
♦ Kindness and respect of others is everyone’s responsibility.
♦ A healthy breakfast is a good way to start the day.
♦ For everyone’s safety, caution and courtesy is needed on the bus, in the schoolyard and on the sidewalk.
♦ Work diligently and listen carefully in class.
