Mission

Vision: In our learning community, we inspire, empower, and support everyone, every day, in every way.

Academics

Students are offered curriculum in each of the four core subject areas including language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Additionally all students participate in physical education/health, art, music, library, and technology.

Clubs

Students are provided opportunities to join enrichment activities offered outside the school day including dance, music/band. TV Production, and Student Leadership.

Programs

We offer before and after-school programming to students in grades 1-4. Many of our teachers work with small groups of students whom may need additional academic assistance and motivation specifically tied to either reading and/or mathematics.

Teachers

Our teachers and staff work together to develop and refine the monitoring of student learning through Professional Learning Communities, peer observation, coaching sessions, data analysis, and professional development.

Supports

Our Student Support Team (i.e., school counselors, a behaviorist, and Child Study Team) works with classroom teachers to allow for a wrap-around approach to the support of students who demonstrate challenges with academics, behavior, and/or attendance.

Health

Our nurses, school counselors, and physical education/health teachers work collaboratively to promote healthy lifestyles. Teachers and staff meet monthly to brainstorm ways to create an emotionally, physically, and socially safe school community.

Parents

Parent and community involvement is promoted through our home-school liaison and PTO. Parents are provided family workshops and social events; positive connections through phone calls and social media blasts, and literacy/math events.
