• My primary mission is to provide opportunities for students to achieve their personal best, become responsible and productive citizens, and embrace lifelong learning in a safe and positive environment.

    I, Mr. Nevatt, believe:

    · All children can learn.

    · All children benefit from developmentally appropriate materials, practices, and strategies.

    · All children deserve a quality education in which individual needs are met, exceeded, and supported.

    · Direct instruction of students helps to increase student achievement.

    · School is not just about children: it encompasses families, parents, community, stakeholders, society, the environment and the world.

    · Children must be encouraged to see the connections between new learning and prior knowledge.

    · Children are more than test scores.

    · Children learn best in a safe, caring environment, one that values diversity, collaboration, and risk-taking.

    · Children thrive when expectations are high and self-esteem higher.

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Nevatt
