Academics + Athletics = Success!

Each Friday morning, the entire school gathers in the courtyard to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, say the Green School Peace Pledge, and hear daily announcements from Principal Dr. Motsinger. Some days are devoted to announcing Running Club miles accumulated by the students and teachers, others are to celebrate the students who "got caught" displaying great character at school. It's a GREAT GREEN way to end the week!

The following peace pledge is said every morning at courtyard:

I am a peacebuilder. I pledge to praise people, to notice and speak up about hurts I have caused, and to right wrongs. I will build peace at home, at school, and in my community each day.
