The mission of Jenny Lind Elementary is to create independent learners while providing a positive environment with consistently high expectations for life-long success.
The staff of Jenny Lind Elementary believe that:
A good educator and administrator have clear expectations, work collaboratively, and address the diverse learning needs of all students.
A good school is one in which staff works together and understands the continuum of expectations and standards throughout all grade levels.
An effective classroom is one in which expectations are clear, discipline is consistent, and all students feel successful and a part of the classroom/school community.
A school should teach children values and skills to be productive and curious citizens.
A successful student is able to make wise choices, take responsibility for his/her actions, effectively communicates ideas and beliefs, and rises to academic standards.
A quality instructional program includes on-going assessment, clear objectives, differentiated instruction, collaboration, communication among staff and parents, and includes diverse and interesting standards driven curricula.
