A former principal, Hershel Olmstead, composed the following poem that outlines our school's vision:
-What we need is a school where we are welcomed, and valued for who we are, where there are many talents that are recognized and praised.
-We need a place where we are encouraged to try new things, take risks, and making mistakes is accepted as normal learning.
-What we need is a place where there is lots of celebrating and fun, where there is a ready hand for those who need a boost, and an open ear for those with something to say.
-Parents are involved here and seen as experts on their kids.
-We are all learning together, rooted to the community in which we live by our connection to our neighbors both young and old, because everyone is included here and someone is checking to see that no one is forgotten, and nothing is left out.
-This is the knowledge that is in our hearts. We all know what we need, and all the policies and procedures, meetings, mission statements, and even these words that you now read cannot give it to us.
What we need is the best in each other, and if we can find it, and if we can give it, the rest will follow, the children will blossom, and we will all get what we need.
