Culture is our first word of the month for the 2017-2018 school year. If culture is the set of the beliefs and customs of a particular group, what do you think the culture of Park is? More importantly, how do you positively contribute to that culture? As principal, I hope to establish a culture of engaged learning.
To me, that means that all students who walk through our doors first feel safe, prepared, comfortable, and confident and then eager to tackle challenging concepts and content.
I work with teachers to help this happen. What can you do to help us maintain this culture?
