Our Motto

Together: Empathy, Effort, Excellence!

He brought me his report card from the teacher
and he said
He wasn’t very proud of it
And sadly bowed his head
He was excellent in reading
And Arithmetic was fair
But I noticed there were several
Unsatisfactory’s there
But on little bit of credit that was given
Brought me joy
He was excellent in EFFORT
And I fairly hugged the boy
Oh, it doesn’t make much difference
What is written on your card
I told the little fellow
If you’re only working hard
The very goods and excellents are fine, I must agree
But the effort you are making
Means a whole lot more to me
And the thing that’s most important
When this card is put aside
Is to know in spite of it all
That doing your best you’ve tried
Just keep excellence in effort
And the rest will come to you
There isn’t any problem
That some day you’ll learn to do
And at last when you grow older
You will come to understand
That by hard and patient toiling
People have risen to command.
