Plus-Minus Observations

Students practice a different moral focus every month of the school year. During each month they do different activities to practice the moral focus, and teachers integrate the morals into the curriculum. Students are able to make connections within the curriculum to their moral focus. Students are able to practice and apply the morals into their daily lives.

Happiness is achieved when you are striving to be your very best.

People may feel even with all of their hard work striving to be the best they can may not be enough.
