Education at Parker Elementary School is designed to meet the needs of each individual student. Our school’s mission as written in our School Improvement Plan and states:
The mission of Parker Elementary is to develop learners who excel in rigorous academics and citizenship through purposeful self-directed learning. It is our goal to use various teaching and learning strategies such as: Life Skills, Lifelong Guidelines, Multiple Intelligences, Bloom’s Taxonomy, and Cooperative Learning. We will accept the challenge to meet the needs of our school community socially, emotionally, academically, and physically. We will work to protect the self-esteem of each individual and to make every member of the “Parker Family” feel special. Our staff and students will become lifelong learners and responsible citizens striving to reach new heights in order to make the world a better place to live.
Ultimately, each student will gain from school according to the effort he/she applies. To increase the degree of educational success, it is very important that teachers, parents, and administrators communicate openly and frequently concerning the progress of students.
We all want the best for your children, but we are not enough. You, the parents, must play a key role in the education of your children. Your words of encouragement, a hug when the day has been rough, your interest in your children’s work, and your presence at school are vital!
Parents count! Come to school, meet us, talk to us, join the P.T.O. and volunteer your time and energy. Your involvement will show your children that you value their education. Let’s work together!
