    We fulfill our mission/vision by following through with our School Improvement Plan, which has a clear focus on two areas:  culture and academics.  In terms of culture, we make sure we keep our focus on building strong relationships as a school community.  This includes our staff, parents/families, community members, and of course our students.  Regarding academics, we align instruction to grade level standards and use multiple data points to drive our targeted instruction.  We maintain high expectations and believe that our children deserve our best every day, no exceptions!
