Superintendent of Schools
Dear Purple Eagle Families,
I hope this letter finds you well. As we journey through the school year together, I wanted to take a moment to emphasize the importance of something very special: student integrity.
Integrity is like the glue that holds our school community together. When students show integrity, they build trust with their teachers, classmates, and themselves. It creates an environment where everyone feels safe and respected.
Here are a few reasons why integrity is so important:
1. Builds Trust: When students show integrity, they earn the trust of their teachers and peers. Trust is essential for learning and working together effectively.
2. Develops Character: Integrity helps students develop strong character traits like honesty, responsibility, and respect. These qualities are valuable not only in school, but also in life.
3. Promotes Fairness: Integrity ensures that everyone is treated fairly and that no one cheats or takes unfair advantages. It creates a level playing field where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed.
4. Fosters Self-Respect: When students act with integrity, they can look themselves in the mirror and feel proud of who they are and what they've accomplished. Self-respect is key to building confidence and self-esteem.
Together, we can create a culture of integrity that empowers our students to become responsible, ethical, and compassionate individuals. Thank you for your partnership in fostering a community where integrity thrives.
