Responsibility: We do the right thing even when no one is watching. We are honest, admitting our mistakes and learning from them. We are growing up to be reliable and trustworthy. You can count on us!

Readiness: We love to learn and are always prepared for learning. We are curious and open to new experiences. Growing and changing is exciting for us.
