The CLIMB (Character Lives In My Behavior) program incorporates four character ideals–Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Citizenship–which form the foundation of our school culture. Students are recognized for exhibiting the CLIMB character traits, and accomplishments are celebrated at CLIMB assemblies held regularly throughout the year.Parent volunteers are welcomed and encouraged to assist in classrooms and at special events. The PTO works in partnership with the faculty and staff. This dedicated group of parents/guardians provides support for curriculum resources, equipment, and enrichment programs. They also sponsor numerous events and activities for our students throughout the year and are always looking for volunteers.
