Cool Cat Certificates are awarded when a student exemplifies one of the four Core Values integrity, responsibility, respect and courage. Students may receive one of these certificates any time a teacher notices one of these excellent behaviors.

Two students from each grade level will be chosen at random from the cool cat certificates collected that month to win a prize. Our next Cool Cat Assembly will be Tomorrow

ThoughtExchange opens on Feb. 28: New school name and principal attributes

As we prepare to open this new school, we want to hear your opinions about the important attributes and contributions of the potential person/namesake for this new school, as well as the traits of its new principal.
