District Mantra: #ValuesMatter
What is #ValuesMatter? #ValuesMatter is about recognizing the best within yourself. Let’s not assume everyone knows what respect means, but rather, let's have teachers and students talk about what respect feels like to one another. Respect, is just one of the values that will be emphasized throughout the years.
In addition, we will be taking #ValuesMatter into the community through local partnerships and community agencies. You will soon being seeing #ValuesMatter promotional videos, posters and other marketing materials throughout the district and on social media.
Below you will find a list of #ValuesMatter activities schools have already participated in this year. This list below is only a partial list.
