Counselor's Corner

April's Character Trait is trustworthiness which includes honesty, reliability, punctuality, and loyalty.

Trustworthiness is the ability to keep promises, to be honest, reliable and principled while never inappropriately betraying a confidence. Trustworthiness relies on the integrity and character of the person.

Lovett Mulch & Playground Expansion Work Day

Come join us as we work on Phase 2 of our "Jason Playground Erosion Control" project!  Bright and early, 8:00AM on Saturday, May 4th, bring your shovels, rakes and gloves and get ready to help us improve the erosion and flooding issues in the front Jason playground.  

No tools to bring?  No problem!  We'll need all the hands we can get to pull up some of the playground's black borders, widen and add more borders, then fill in with "kiddie cushion" (aka mulch!).
