"Yup - I read it on the front door!"
It's true. Throughout Langley's halls, there are signs reading, "In this place you are loved," and this school really means it. School leadership personally greets students each day, and classrooms are a place of calm, respect, and connection. Missing a day of school? They love you anyway, with a cute routine of "wishing well" their absent classmates.
This is because children learn best when they feel safe and connected to their teacher, classmates, and school community. Discipline isn't something we do to children-- it's something we cultivate in children by teaching skills, modeling behaviors, and showing love to each one, every day.
So a very happy Valentine's Day to you. Thanks so much for coming to our Open House. We wish you well!
