Our Vision Statement
"Our focus is to create an atmosphere of warmth, trust, and respect by continuously role modeling and helping others understand the importance of such an atmosphere. We will lead students to believe in themselves by using data to show their strengths, data to help them set goals, and data to plan instruction so that students CAN meet their goals. We will know students, take an interest in our students, and appreciate the diversity of our students. Only positive, professional, productive approaches will be used towards parents, students and colleagues in order to establish and maintain the needed teamwork that it takes to succeed."
We at Crawfordville Elementary School believe all of life is a continuous process of education, formal and informal.
We believe the curriculum must provide for the maximum development of each student’s thinking and reasoning potential as well as the acquisition of fundamental skills.
We believe students are unique in aptitude, stages of maturation, personality, physical and perceptual development. For these reasons, a variety of instructional materials, teaching methods, and learning experiences will be used to create a learning environment to help students develop healthy self-concepts through experiencing success in accordance with their abilities and interests.
We believe student learning is enhanced by encouraging wellness through proper nutrition, lifelong fitness, and self-care skills.
We believe students must be prepared to live in a rapidly-changing technological world and that they need to develop the critical thinking skills which will enable them to perform under new and unfamiliar circumstances.
We believe citizenship in a democratic society involves the assumption of duties and responsibilities in that society as well as an awareness and appreciation of our diverse background, traditions, and cultural heritage.
We believe in the continual updating and strengthening of staff members’ knowledge and skills in subject areas as well as human relationships and educational theory.
We believe an effective program of education includes constructive participation and open communication between the school, parents, and the community.
We believe in the continual measurement and evaluation of all programs for effectiveness and suitability within the framework of the total curriculum.
We believe student learning is enriched through participation in the arts.
We believe it is the purpose of Crawfordville Elementary School to provide a positive and diverse learning environment commensurate with this philosophy.
