Mission and School Goals

Our mission is to help all of our students achieve at their highest level and potential by providing individualized instruction in a safe and nurturing environment. We also strive to develop student awareness of and respect for cultural diversity.
 
Our mission includes the following:
  • Promoting instruction aligned with Common Core Standards;
  • Providing a wide range of academic programs and services to develop critical thinking to enhance civil and social skills;
  • Supporting a positive learning environment through the collaborative efforts of dedicated staff, involved parents, and a supportive community.

This school year 2016-2017, we will continue to provide our students with rigorous learning activities that are aligned to the Common Core Standards.

Our instructional goals:
  • Increasing comprehension skills by conducting weekly shared/closed reading sessions.
  • Increasing writing stamina across grades by receiving monthly peer and teacher feedback.
  • Increasing students understanding in applying their math knowledge by collaboratively creating two math tasks/projects.
  • Increasing student engagement in 80% of our classrooms by conducting student-focused walkthroughs.
  • Increasing parent communication by having 80% of our parents sign up for  Remind.
