Mission, Vision and Beliefs

Vision

Little Run Elementary is a school where everyone is valued and students are engaged in a creative, safe learning environment.

Mission

We are a community of learners that build strong relationships and provide all students with rigorous and engaging learning opportunities. By developing students’ interpersonal skills, we encourage them to take risks, persevere through challenges, and celebrate successes. We promote independence and participation in new experiences to nurture individual talents. We partner with families to support the whole child--academically, socially, and emotionally.

Equity - We believe that each child has a unique path to success and it is our job to understand who they are and provide them with the opportunities they need to thrive.

Perseverance - We believe new learning comes from taking risks, even when things are difficult, and learning from our mistakes.

Communication - We believe that our community thrives when there is an open and supportive connection between home and school.

Collaboration - We believe that by working together we build a strong foundation for student achievement, teacher development, and family engagement.

Caring- We believe that it is our responsibility to foster positive relationships by considering other people’s beliefs and perspectives.
