Gospel Value  -  "Dignity of Persons". Staff look for students who show respect for self and others; listen actively and respectfully; make good decisions in many situations; model humility.  

Gospel Value - "Community".  Staff look for students who resolve conflicts well; cooperate well with others; promote safety in school and on the schoolyard; including others.

Gospel Value - "Hope".  Staff look for students who set high expectations for themselves; inspire others to do their best; commit  to learning; always try their best.

Gospel Value -  "Justice".  Staff look for students who give generously to those in need; participate as a peacemaker; treat everyone equally; demonstrate fairness in others.  

Gospel Value - "Love".  Staff look for students who demonstrate patience; forgive others when they make a mistake; know how to be a good friend; being a helper to peers and staff.

Gospel Value - "Faith".  Staff look for students who actively participate in Religion and Family Life classes; actively participate in prayer, masses and liturgies; treat others as Jesus taught us to do

Gospel Value - "Care for God's Creation".  Staff look for students who help keep the classroom tidy; model energy conservation; care for others; demonstrate care for the environment
