We believe in the freedom to wonder, to ask, to explore, to imagine, to create. We believe that success means doing our best, being our best, and feeling proud of our effort. We believe that every one of us has special talents, and that the talents of each of us help all of us. We believe in ourselves, in each other, in our classroom.
