We will not be complacent in our jobs.
We will not be selfish in our jobs.
We will not use excuses, but rather seek solutions.

We will not gossip, but rather support one another.
We will not criticize or complain, but rather remember we are all working together toward the same goal.
We will hold each other accountable.
We will gently remind one another through “Teamwork”.
We will do our best to learn all the facts before beginning.
We will work together on our goals for consistency and effective communication.
We will commit to Leading for Learning … and we will Reach for the Stars everyday!
