Card IconOur MissionTop of Page

Our mission is to provide our TK-5 students with the tools for academic excellence and civic responsibility. We do this by ensuring we establish a school culture and climate that's a strength-based approach building upon the skill sets of each stakeholder in our school community.
 
A model of educational excellence is personified in our work as educators as we continually and collaboratively learn strategies and best practices from one another so that we are autonomous professionals in designing and delivering lessons that result in student achievement. We acknowledge educational excellence in our students and the skill sets they perform innately. Celebrating and analyzing what students know, they are then equipped by teachers and staff in order to excel beyond. Consequently, they are expected to meet academic and behavior expectations and take personal responsibility for their own learning.
 
The notion of educational excellence extends to our families' commitment to support their child and to be active partners with teachers and staff to support the academic growth and social well-being of their children. Mutual respect between staff, students, and parents is the norm in order to nurture a learning environment where all stakeholders are valued, informed and motivated to carry out our mission and to reach our school and district vision of educational excellence for all students.
