"The Principal's Principles"

EQUALITY - Equality means that all people have the same rights and freedom. Everyone has the same chance to learn, and use the school equipment equally. It does not mean that everyone is the same, but rather that everyone has the same chances to participate and learn. The Declaration of Independence states that, "... all men are created equal." That means that all people should have the same rights, no matter where they are born, who their parents are, or what they look like. EQUALITY is one of the great principles that sets America apart from many countries in the world. Work hard to make the most of your opportunities to learn and become the best you can be!

"Pumpkin Math"

Third grade teachers Mrs. Akers and Ms. Walls planned a day of fun learning for their students on Halloween Day. The students were divided into groups and each group was given a pumpkin. The groups estimated the circumference, weight, and the number of seeds their pumpkin contained. After recording their estimation, the students actually measured the circumference, weighed the pumpkin, and counted the seeds. Afterwards, the students enjoyed eating roasted pumpkin seeds.

6th Grade's Visit to Zora Ellis Science Halloween Chemistry Event

The Principal's Principles

ENTHUSIASM - Enthusiasm means being excited, interested, and eager about something. The more you practice enthusiasm , the more it will improve. Start by identifying things you enjoy. Choose something you are excited about such as: people, food, nature, music, math, or anything that interests you. You communicate enthusiasm more with your body movements than with words. The expression on your face and the excitement you show shows you are enthusiastic. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, " Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." Enthusiasm is contagious! It starts inside you and builds as you practice it each day. Be enthusiastic and make each day a great one!
