Our mouse represents everyone connected to our school community- students, staff, parents, and stakeholders. We believe that everyone of us is capable of learning one more thing. When we commit to learning one more thing and trying one more time, we become lifelong learners! We have based our mission on Vygotsky's ideas about a Zone of Proximal Development and Stephen Krashen's theory of i +1. We want to identify where we are-- the i-- and then work on what comes next- the +1! If we continue to learn one more thing every day, we will be life long learners - the infinity sign.
We will improve student learning by design.
