Safety First


We are a GREAT school because we respect and care about each other.

The students attended an assembly to remind them how to respect and care for others.  A few of the items that Mr. Argyle taught were

  • To Say Please STOP - that hurts my feelings, Walk Away, or Talk to a Teacher
  • Follow Directions the First Time
  • Always Be in the Right Place
  • No Running in the Hallways
  • Keep Hands, Feet, Mouth, AND Objects to yourself
  • Dress Appropriately
  • No Weapons, Cell Phones (except in backpacks), Toys, Games, or Electronic Devices

We know these rules will help each of us feel safe and respected.
