Our Core Values

Pete Gumm, Principal

Values Motivated by Jesus' Love

Beautiful Savior Lutheran School exists to assist parents in the training of their children to be followers of Jesus and to know him as their Savior. This is an incredible mission, and one that we are privileged to carry out! In order to meet our mission, it is also important that we clearly define what we believe and how our students (and parents/faculty) are expected to respond as dearly-loved children of God.

We have adopted the success skills of love, empathy, integrity, faithfulness, and grit as our school’s core values. Success skills are a set of attitudes, feelings, and behaviors that have actually been found to be more predictive of long-term outcomes than have test scores and IQ. They’ve been shown to help students academically, both now in elementary school and all the way through their schooling into high school and college. They’re also directly related to a number of adult outcomes such as health, financial stability, and reaching long-term career goals. Plus they just make a school a better place for everybody, creating a safe and welcoming learning environment. 

 

But ultimately, they give our students opportunities to show thanks and praise, motivated by Jesus' love, for what he has done for them. When asked about their identity, our students can proudly and confidently say, “I am a dearly-loved Child of God, and I show this by displaying the following characteristics…”
