Our classroom is a welcoming environment where students are encouraged to try their best, make mistakes, learn from their mistakes, and apply their knowledge in all areas of study. We focus on kindness, community building, encouragement, “going with the flow” and being flexible, developing a growth mindset, and friendship. Our CPE Core Values are an important part of interacting with each other and working in our classroom each day. Music and singing play a key role in our classroom and our learning. Songs will help shape our learning and create connections for students to draw on for years to come. My labradoodle comes to school with me once a week. Cassie is a certified therapy dog, and she helps build the feeling of community in our classroom.
