Collaboratively Working to Encourage Success
1. Students who are responsible learners and embrace personal and academic challenges in order to become future problem solvers and leaders.
2. Educators who continuously improve student-centered instructional practices through the use of data, technology and ongoing professional development.
3. Community members who are actively involved and help develop, support and fund school improvement initiatives that challenge our students to succeed.
Our philosophy is based on meeting the needs of the total child. We are concerned with all areas of development: academic, social, physical and emotional. While our focus is on increasing student achievement, this is not at the exclusion of children's social, physical or emotional well-being.
We want you to know that we are committed to providing a nurturing, safe, learning environment for your children. Every decision we make will be based on what is best for your children. We want our students to know that they are cared for and listened to and that there is no problem so great that it cannot be solved.
Our goals are to:
ensure that all children will achieve to their fullest potential in a safe,
enhance the development of each child's self-esteem so that the child views
himself as a person of worth and dignity.
make each child's educational experiences pleasant and success oriented
so that the child develops an enthusiasm and love for lifelong learning.
foster a collaborative, respectful relationship between children, families
staff and community.
