Afterwards, we walked around the campus to see what the "implicit messages" were, to see what was being said without being said! Here's what we "read" as walked around the campus:
We care about children and want to provide for those whose parents work late
We provide a safe environment for our students and teachers
We have stood the test of time - over 125 years of educational labor
While we are a bilingual school, we are also proudly Mexican
We take seriously caring for the environment
Sports are important, but a well-trained mind comes first
These are the messages we got from walking around the school--nothing written, but messages that come through loud and clear. I'm proud that our school sends these messages...to teachers, parents, students, and prospective students. Go, Laurens!
