The Glendale Principles of Care

At Glendale School we make every effort to support students in building social skills for problem solving and conflict resolution. We believe that students should take care of themselves, take care of others, take care of this place, and take care of their learning.

Students and parents can use the following considerations to talk about how the Principles of Care are embedded in our learning.

1. Take care of myself

  • I will speak up when I have a concern, problem or worry
  • I will commit to working hard to be the best I can be
  • I will come to school fed, dressed appropriately for the weather and demonstrate clean hygiene
  • I will keep myself safe by making safe and caring choices

2. Take care of others

  • I will keep my hands, feet and objects to myself
  • I will respect others, taking action as a bystander for what is right
  • I will treat others the way I want to be treated
  • I will be a friend, be empathetic and reach out to include others
  • I will respect all people and I will be there to help others in need

3. Take care of this place

  • I will be a responsible and caring citizen 
  • I keep my space clean-pick up garbage/recycle
  • I will be generous with my words and actions
  • I will respect school property in and out of the classroom

4. Take care of my learning

  • I will work to the best of my ability
  • I will believe in myself and see the best in others
  • I will come to school ready to learn by bringing materials, doing homework, having my agenda, with my indoor shoes
  • I will ask for help when I need it
  • I will utilize learning strategies to solve problems independently
