Ensuring classrooms with high expectations and clear standards, strong classroom management, and effective teaching practices.

Maximizing student learning through our partnership with families and the school community.

Helping families stay connected with their students’ learning by communicating expectations and student progress, building relationships, and providing parents the tools they need to help their children succeed.

Incorporating new knowledge into practice through professional development and promoting open and shared instructional practices with time to collaborate, evaluate and reflect.

Involving parents and community in an active role in supporting our schools including mutual sharing of new knowledge, building positive relationships and opening the schools for volunteering.
