Structures and Strategies

We believe we must build a foundation centered on structures and strategies that support student
learning, leadership and growth. Because we believe this, we are committed to:
Developing individual and classroom mission statements for direction and purpose each academic school
year.
Monitoring personal and academic growth through the use of student data notebooks which will provide a
common foundation for effective communication between teachers, parents, and students.
Modeling the goal setting process to help students consistently set and reflect on personal and academic
goals.
Providing student recognition for demonstrating leadership qualities.
Fostering a school culture which encourages students to take responsibility for their own behavior and
learning through Raise Responsibility, common expectations and instruction in principle-centered leader-
ship skills.
Using professional protocols, Quality Tools and Quality-Plus Teaching Strategies to nurture and enhance
student learning.
Parent and Community Involvement

We believe it is essential for community members and parents to be active partners in developing successful
learners and leaders. Because we believe this, we are committed to:
Communicating with adults in our community through the use of the school website, classroom newsletters and
websites, student passports, Tiger Tales, report cards, Peek at the Week, Parent Portal, Edulink messages and
other online sites like Homework Now.
Providing opportunities to have face to face interactions to communicate expectations, student progress and
growth through parent conferences, student support team and Curriculum Night.
Providing opportunities for students to demonstrate learning and leadership skills at PTA programs, Cultural
Arts, Instructional Fair, Science and Social Studies fairs, student led conferences, student performances and
classroom observation days.
Providing opportunities and information for parents and community members to acquire knowledge about lead-
ership skills related to the 7 Habits and Raise Responsibility.
Providing volunteer opportunities for parents that support developing student leadership.
