“Be a Buddy, Not a Bully!” is our mantra here at Schmitt. We care for one another by standing up for ourselves and our peers. Our students and staff take pride in their bully-free school environment. We “fill each other’s buckets” by supporting positive behavior and being kind to one another. Patty Gonzales, principal of Schmitt, and Karla Gruenwald, assistant principal, along with all staff members, encourage Schmitt students’ culture of care at monthly RISE Assemblies by recognizing students who exhibit positive behaviors and exemplify the positive Schmitt culture.
Caring for each other goes beyond school hours at Schmitt. Through a partnership with Sprouts Farmers Market, our Backpack Program ensures that our students never go home hungry. Every week, participating students get a backpack of food for their family during the weekend.
Schmitt’s community garden is a wonderful addition to our school. We are all able to enjoy the vegetables we grow during lunch and snack time. Students appreciate their outdoor classroom where they learn to care about where their food comes from and the importance of community.
Come experience Schmitt’s culture of care!
