“The humanities – central to our cultural heritage – are not inborn and must be taught anew for each generation. Let’s get on with it.”

Jim Haas, retired teacher, principal, and graduate-degree director at Webster University in Kansas City, Mo. in “For the Sake of Humanity, Teach the Humanities” in EdWeek, Nov. 14, 2016

Everyday, we teach important values to our students. We work in a community that embraces these same values. So, as we look towards the next four years in our country, we will continue to teach all the values we hold dear, the values that welcome people from around the world to our community and value all children in our classrooms as equals.

M.P. O’Connell, Principal
