Mike Rauch Values



Teamwork encompasses respect, trust, open communication, and purposefulness.  Staff need to feel supported; families need to be engaged. Respect is a way of caring about the rights and privacy of others and honouring their dignity; peacefully expressing even your strongest feelings. Open communication is key so that diverse points of view can be considered and every individual can contribute openly. With mutual trust and respect, teachers and administrators can concentrate efforts so that good can be achieved.  


Excellence takes courage, creativity, perseverance, humility, and self-discipline. Excellence does not mean trying to be better than anyone else; it is simply trying to be the best version of oneself. It is a way to recognize unique talents and to let originality shine. It is celebrating achievements. It is a willingness to learn from mistakes, instead of being ashamed of them. Excellence is to approach every situation with our very best effort.


Family &

When we make family and community a priority, we see service, caring, consideration, and thankfulness. It means making a positive difference in the lives of others and making the world a better place. Family and community give students a sense of belonging, a crucial basis for learning. Consideration is thinking about the needs of others and nowhere is this more prevalent than within the family structure. Parents are the first and primary educators of their children. Healthy families are the foundation of healthy societies. A trusting relationship between schools and families is essential for student success.
