Tigers: Ready, Prepared, Resourceful

Within our school district we frequently talk about education standards, assessments, classroom management, and lesson planning.  At the forefront of all conversations is the most important focus: what is best for our students.  All of our teachers know that their own content area is only a part of what we are here to accomplish.  In every teacher in-service and in each planning meeting, we keep our focus on what is most important.  We are here to develop good citizens for our community that are college and career ready. All content areas are important, but students need more to be productive citizens.  We also work on teaching and demonstrating resilience, resourcefulness, responsibility, effective relationships, respect, and of course, reading.  Our hope is that our students will become "self-feeders" in their quest for knowledge and experience.
