Walk down our halls and you will see a celebration of student learning and expectations. Student work hangs outside of classrooms. Cubs with Character expectations are visible throughout the school. Artwork from each child brings life to the walls. Elaborate book fair displays ignite a passion for reading. Student-made posters advertise service-learning events. Listen closely and you will hear the sounds of student learning and expectations. Students are talking through their learning. Teachers are modeling new strategies. Custodians are encouraging students to persevere. The principal is talking to the instructional coach about our next instructional focus. The administrative assistant is reminding parents about upcoming events. The counselor is facilitating a group about family changes. A volunteer is practicing sight words with a student.
These are the sights and sounds of a school committed to the whole child.
