GUMP Goals (For Children)

While educating CHILDREN we strive:

  • to nurture children’s emotional development so that they can identify their feelings and choose appropriate responses while maintaining a positive outlook.

  • to guide children to be respectful, independent, caring, accepting and honest in their relationships.

  • to bequeath to children assurance that they are unconditionally loved by God and that they have immeasurable worth.

  • to promote a healthy sense of self that motivates children to care for themselves and others.

  • to inspire children to be confident, independent thinkers who are inquisitive, creative and problem solvers.

GUMP Goals (For Parents)

In partnering with PARENTS we strive:

  • to empower parents to be confident as their child(ren)’s first and most important teacher while building a trusting parent/teacher partnership focused on the best interests of their child(ren).

  • to encourage parents to accept their child(ren) as individuals, understand their limitations, allow them to develop at their own pace, and love them unconditionally.

  • to support parents in being patient, united and consistent as they parent their child(ren), helping them to assume the roles of loving authority figures and role models.

  • to ensure that parents understand and honor school policies, as they are designed to benefit all children and families.

  • to educate parents about their child(ren)’s individual needs and developmental milestones.

  • to support parents by providing a community of love, faith, acceptance, open-mindedness and forgiveness.
