Student Leadership Pledge 2019-20

School’s Motto


To be a leader is not to have people follow you. It is accountability and responsibility to those who choose to follow you and support the decisions you make. Leadership is an ability to lead skillfully and thoughtfully. To follow someone in their leadership capacity is to respect their decisions and their innate abilities as a leader.


To be a person of honor, upholding your beliefs when others may doubt you and to staying true to your values. Integrity consists of your moral compass.


To always do what is right, even when no one else is looking.


To show pride is not to revel in one’s own accomplishments, but to stand with your team, your peers, your school, your family, and your community as you struggle with adversity, cheer with excitement, and help each other.
