May Leader in Me Theme



It is not often easy to share your voice and it takes COURAGE to do so.  We are challenging everyone to practice courage each day for the next 22 days of school.  A Courage Challenge Board is in the hall with a suggestion each day for something courageous to do.  


Teachers encourage your students to be courageous (respectfully of course) by challenging bad behaviors, sharing ideas in class even when you don’t know if you are right, trying new things, and more.  If your class has 50% of students attempt courage each day, your class will earn an extra recess with an outside dance party at 10:00 on the last day of school.  Keep track and let Ms. Briggs know if you accomplished the goal by June 8 at 3:30 so it can be announced in the morning announcements on June 9.


Share your voice by using courage for the last 22 days!











We love, value, and teach by nurturing the whole child.  We will change the world, one child at a time.



All children will know they are valued and loved, empowering them to become exceptional learners and successful leaders.  They will show consistent improvement on measured assessments ensuring they are grade level prepared to enter middle school by the end of 5th grade.



When children know they are loved and valued, they will learn to love themselves and the world around them. This will give them the intrinsic desire to be the best they can. It will enrich their academic, social and personal lives, creating successful individuals and leaders.
