When parents recently arrived at the Early Childhood Center for Character Day, staff handed them a copy of the Parents' Creed.
The creed states:
Parents and Patrons are the most important people to enter this office in person, by mail, or by telephone.
Parents and Patrons are not dependent upon us; on the contrary, we are dependent upon them.
Parents and Patrons are not an interruption of our work; they are the purpose of it.
We are not doing them a favor by serving them; they do us a favor by permitting us to do so.
Parents and Patrons are not cold statistics; they are concerned human beings with feeling and emotions like our own, who entrust their children to our care.
Parents and Patrons are persons who bring us their problems, their needs and their ideas. Our job is to handle these problems with understanding, fairness, enthusiasm and professional skill.
Thank you, parents, for making The Varnett Public School your school of choice.
