School Creed

I am a South Haven Elementary School Student.

I have great expectations for myself.

I accept the challenge to become the best I can be.

I was born a winner and I will not allow myself to think
of failure.

For those of you who chose to fail, this is your right, but
you do not have the right to take others with you.

Yesterday’s failures are behind me.

Today’s successes are now before me.

I will make today the very best day of all,

For this day begins the rest of my life.

Student Creed

We value one another as unique and
special individuals.

We will NOT laugh or make fun of a
person’s mistakes.

We will use good manners, saying
please and thank you, excuse me, and
let others go first.

We will cheer each other to success.

We will help one another whenever

We will recognize every effort and
applaud it.

We will encourage each other to do our

We will practice virtuous living, using
the life principles.
