All students must join their current grade level classroom for essential school year news, announcements, lessons, and activities from the School Counseling Office.

Building up our Bulldogs is what we do through our character education program.  We encourage our students to subscribe to having a growth mindset so that they are empowered to create the person that they want and need to be in order to achieve their life goals. Through engaging videos, thought provoking quotes, and activities, students learn 11 powerful key character traits:  Creativity, Perspective, Perseverance, Honesty, Kindness, Social Responsibility, Leadership, Forgiveness, Self Control, Gratitude, and Optimism
