Code of Conduct

CODE OF CONDUCT

Our Lady of the Lake School provides a Catholic atmosphere where each child can grow.  The faculty and staff work together to protect the rights of each child and work to eliminate whatever disturbs the peace-filled learning environment.  We strive to encourage self-discipline with such well-ordered thinking and acting that real learning can take place.  Respect for God, self, and others is what motivates us to make choices that contribute to a Christian learning environment.  Students are assisted in learning that self-discipline is part of total growth and that they are responsible for their choices.  To this end we ask each child:
