Principal's Message

We have a vision whereby all students are treated equally as our very own children. We have a vision whereby all children learn the values of respect, responsibility, and honesty. We have a vision whereby all students are taught in an atmosphere of compassion, empathy, and nurture. We have a vision whereby we meet the needs of all of our students, capitalizing on their strengths and diversity, while eliminating their weaknesses and problems. We have a vision whereby all students who are in need of help have a teacher, a paraprofessional, a secretary, and aide, or the principal to personally intervene to help that child work through any and all problems. We have a vision whereby all staff members understand and put into practice our Guiding Principle “If he/she were my child, what would I want the principal to do, the teacher to do, the…”

We have a vision whereby all staff contributes their expertise, their love, their ideas, their energy, their passion, and their compassion into one over-riding goal…”To develop the entire child into a vibrant, happy, loving, inquisitive, empathetic, and respectful child who believes in the ideals of self worth and self-realization. We have a vision whereby all staff comes to school with the positive energy and ideas of knowing that each new day brings to each of us new challenges of the heart, mind, and soul. We have a vision whereby all of our aspirations of long ago are as fresh today as when we first entertained the idea of “giving something back, of making a difference, of making our existence more meaningful and fulfilling.”

  We have a vision whereby we work as one, avoiding petty conflicts and pitfalls, which takes us off track of attaining our aspirations. We have a vision whereby we will support each other, we will teach each other, we will listen to each other, we will care for each other and this in turn will allow us to support and encourage each other to attain our aspirations. We have a vision whereby our value system, our belief system, our innermost conceptions of what we want to achieve, becomes a reality in the lives of our students. We have a vision of creating a school – a building, of creating a community – the people, of creating an environment – the classroom, into a reality whereby the vision of all that we want for our students is achieved. We have a vision whereby we know our Guiding Principle “If he/she were my child, what would I want….” would be a dream come true.
