At Explore!, we actively seek to cultivate growth in our school’s five core values, which have become interwoven into the fabric of the school.
Curiosity – Community – Compassion – Courage – Craftsmanship
We encourage exploration and discovery in teaching and learning.
We learn from each other and collaborate to make a positive impact on our school, families, and world.
We are mindful of others and are kind and helpful to ensure we all experience success.
We take action to do the right thing even when it’s hard. We stand up for others, admit our mistakes, and ask for help when we need it.
We do whatever it takes to ensure we create work that is worthy of pride.
Every semester, one pathfinder will be selected from each grade level, showing strengths in a single core value. The month before the semester ends, the community will be aware that pathfinder nominations are open, and all are invited (staff, family, community, and explorers) to submit nominations. A staff and explorer pathfinder panel (composed of staff and current pathfinders) read through the nominations and determine the next round of pathfinders. To become a pathfinder is Explore!’s highest honor.
