Design Principle for the Month of April - Service & Compassion

We are crew, not passengers. Students and teachers are strengthened by acts of consequentia service to others,
and one of an EL Education school’s primary functions is to prepare students with the attitudes and skills to learn from and be of service.

Message from Principal Kevin Burns

The Canvas work and packets ELMS sent home should be completed according to the daily schedule that was given to families. And, all students should be reading and journaling for at least 30 minutes per day.  Video Instructions for Accessing Student Classwork on SCSD Canvas
