Creating a safe, healthy, inclusive,
Christ-centered learning environment
Everyone needs to have a sense of belonging and connection with others. This helps provide a positive school climate where students, parents, staff and community members feel they belong and are valued. Working with our school community, we return to our Catholic faith roots to examine how we might promote and encourage safe, healthy, inclusive, equitable, Christ-centered learning environments in our schools.
Our Catholic teachings promote a culture of Being, Belonging and Becoming in the classroom, school and community. A variety of learning environments are provided in which students can develop feelings of acceptance, belonging, and self-worth. We recognize that the divine image is present in each and every person. Parents, students, staff and community members are invited to demonstrate Healthy living, Belonging and Stewardship in their daily words and actions.
