Our school is guided by a core set of beliefs:

  • We put student needs first to ensure that all learn and succeed.

  • Communication should be timely, transparent and reciprocal.

  • We treat each other respectfully and consider all perspectives.

  • Collaboration among school, community and families is essential for student success.

  • We commit to creativity, innovation and continuous improvement.

  • District resources are utilized efficiently.

  • Effective curriculum and instruction must be rigorous, engaging, purposeful and differentiated.

  • We model integrity and ethical behavior.

  • Learning and growth require a safe, caring environment emphasizing social and emotional well-being.

  • We are accountable for our actions.

As the Elementary Principal, I am honored to be the instructional leader of an eager group of Pre-K through Sixth grade students and a dedicated staff of educators.  I am proud of our expanded PreK, which provides full day grant-supported educational opportunities for students as young as 2 years old (turning 3 by 12/1). 

Please feel free to contact me with questions, suggestions or concerns. Together we can make a difference in the lives of our children as we prepare them for the future.

Dr. Elissa G. Smith,

Elementary Principal
