Thank-you to all students, parents and staff who worked together to identify the core values that are most important to us as a school community. Together we have created our new Social Responsibility Acronym. S.P.A.R.K.
S.P.A.R.K. stands for the following:
S - safe
R - respectful
These core values help us remeber how to behave and interact within the Maple Lane community. The values of S.P.A.R.K. are the foundation to how we care for each other, care for our community, and care for ourselves.
S.P.A.R.K. has been introduced to the entire student body, and is often part of classroom discussions. Many classes have begun talking about S.P.A.R.K. in lessons and activities. In May, we will have a cooperative teams activity, where together teams will help to identify how to be Safe, Positive, Accountable, Respectful and Kind in the classroom, in the hallways and outside on the playground.
We encourage all parents to ask their children about S.P.A.R.K. and how it is important to them at school. We also hope that the core values of S.P.A.R.K. will become part of the laguage parents and students use at home when talking about how we care for others, care for the environment and care for ourselves.
