    4. Guiding Principles Our Shared Values We believe that all stakeholders of our school should treat each other with respect and compassion. No one should be treated unkindly. We believe that members of the school community should not yell, scream, use abusive language, or do any acts that demean or intimidate others. We are COMMITTED to creating safe and secure environments that foster the growth of trust among all members of the community. We believe that everyone has to take responsibility for creating an enriching learning environment. This can be achieved by carefully listening to each other, engaging in respectful dialogue, and being committed to our shared values. Brookmeade Elementary School
