What We Value
We start each day with a pledge; to ourselves and to each other.
Our student's daily pledge goes like this:
“Rainbow of Knowledge is filled with people like me.
I help make it the greatest school that it can be.
If I am nice to others, it will be a friendly place.
I can make it filled with students with a smile upon their face.
My school will be so mindful, if I stay in my own lane
And fix what I can in myself, instead of placing blame.
My day will be so peaceful, if calm is what I stay.
And get along with others, since that's the Rainbow Way.
So here's my pledge, this task is now, right in front of me,
Of being all the things, today, I want my school to be.”
These empowering words best explain what we attempt to achieve with our students on a daily basis. By reciting this pledge together, we make a commitment to one another to put our best foot forward every single day. Does this happen? Of course not. But when we stray off our higher path, we have these words to fall back on when things go wrong. We do our best to teach our students to learn from any and all mistakes made in any given day. Then try again tomorrow.
Our hope is to plant a seed that will continue to grow in each child, long after they leave our campus. While students at our school, we nourish these seeds as much as possible, and help them to begin to grow and flourish, as they start their independent, responsible, inquisitive, joyful journeys in life.
