Mission Statement & Points of Pride

Mission Statement

Students will be empowered to achieve their goals through lifelong learning and leading. 

Belief Statement

We believe that all students can learn in a safe, caring, responsible, positive, and respectful environment. We also believe that parent support at home with homework and practice is important to a child's school success and that teachers' utilization of research-based teaching practices will engage all students to achieve their personal best.

Vision Statement

To empower students to be lifelong leaders and learners.

Before the Thanksgiving break, we hosted an all-school assembly where we danced, told jokes, performed magic, and cut the principal's hair! We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. Principal Chris Swanson cut off 14” of hair, which was donated to the Michigan organization Children with Hair Loss.
