Our mission is to provide a safe learning environment that is supportive of our students' potential as they develop academically and socially.  We strive to bridge the gap between what the students know and what they need to know.  We commit to building background knowledge, to scaffolding instruction, to providing a spectrum of materials and to giving ample time for cooperative interactions for all student.  We recognize that all students are capable of achieving high expectations while we celebrate all growth in learning as a success.  We are dedicated to working with parents and the community to ensure a strong educational foundation.
