Our Guiding Values Continua our precious students

Our Guiding Values Continua include:
1. Empathy ↔ Kindness (Do unto others as you would have them do onto you)
2. Hard-working/Work ethic that values practice ↔ Getting smart
3. Self-regulation/self-reflection ↔ Owning mistakes/fixing them ↔ Responsibility
4. Education ↔ Knowledge ↔ Activism ↔ Change (Si se puede!)
5. Tolerance ↔ Acceptance

At the core of a healthy school community there are values that all members of the community are held to. It is our belief that these values fall on a continua that will challenge all members to keep getting better in their living up to these values. Our goal is that these values will become a part of all of our students' and adults' character and that as a result of this the members of the Tobin school community will help in making the world a better place. Let's elevate opportunities to learn together! We are Team Tobin!
