Eagles rise far above the ground and see life from a broad perspective. They also know how to wait for the right moment to soar. Eagles do not travel in flocks, nor do they conduct themselves irresponsibly. The eagle is committed to that which he is destined to do, without concern for what is below him.
All students are expected to silently enter their homeroom. During silent homeroom, each student will be expected to read a book or to work on homework. Students will not be allowed to talk during homeroom. Silent homeroom will allow students to keep calm and carry on towards an awesome day!
