Enduring Understandings
Each individual contributes unique talents to make their community successful.

Communities continually grow and change in response to the times and needs of the citizens.

Topography, climate and natural resources help determine how a community develops.

Each of us will have an impact on our community’s future by the way we choose to live our lives.

We are all part of the larger history of our community, its past, present and future.

The actions of those who came before us continue to influence our lives today.
