Have you seen these great new decals on the floor of all of our schools?


It's a reminder to all who walk the halls of our schools to Live, Stand, and Lead with Respect!

These floor decals were generously donated by Hands of Hope, a division of Family Service Society. We are so grateful for the continued support of this fantastic organization. Three decals and three banners were donated to each of our school buildings. If you don't see them yet, they'll be on display soon!

Check out these fantastic resources from Family Services for more information on violence and the toll it takes on individuals and our community ... and how you can take action against it!
