Fortunately at C-A we have teachers and staff who truly care about all kids. They personify what is best about the people who work at C-A. We recently worked to synthesize these positive behaviors and came back to three key values(behaviors) that we feel clearly identify who we are. We have GRATITUDE in knowing we have an enormous responsibility each day to help kids be successful and there is no better satisfaction than working in a school where kids come first. We understand each child has a story and by getting to know each of our students our EMPATHY for their challenges and successes guides our support for them. Finally, we know that in order for us and our students to continually improve everyday we must HAVE HOPE and TAKE POSITIVE ACTION.
These core values along with five anchor strategies(learn more about these athttp://www.cacsd.org/domain/524 ) provide us the lens and filter in our daily decisions and actions as we strive to be a school that inspires all learners to achieve extraordinary success. We invite you attend the many events we host throughout the year and see our students in action.
