Schools across the Cedar Rapids district use the acronym "PARRT" to remind students of the essential character qualities needed for academic and life success.
P = Personal Best – Striving for high quality products and outcomes
A = Active Listening – Listening attentively and speaking when appropriate
R = Respect – Showing tolerance and regard for people, property, and ideas
R = Responsibility – Dependably following directions and procedures
T = Trustworthiness – Being truthful, reliable, and choosing to do the right thing
At Coolidge, we make it a priority to teach and highlight these qualities every day. When students and staff "Do Their PARRT," we show the best in ourselves and help to make our school a great place to learn, work, and have fun.
