Vision: To deliver the strongest possible educational experience through a commitment to educational ideals based in Love, Excellence, Expectations, the 4 B’s, and Family.
Love: Our campus is committed to filling all of our processes with a deeply rooted love for children, colleagues, and the community. We show love each day through our professionalism, how we look at and treat our students from bell to bell and beyond, how we support each other collaboratively, how we listen to and interact with the community, and how we seek to grow and improve each day.
Excellence: We seek to use our 5 guiding pillars to move our students and campus from acceptable status to distinguished recognition: 5 pillars of daily practice for 5 stars of achievement. We hope to use the Ron Clark’s Move your Bus and the Fundamental 5 to align our energy and effort on campus to support maximum student achievement for 2018/19.
Expectations: Our school will consistently use student/teacher data points to establish clear expectations for daily, weekly, quarterly, and yearly goals. Students and teachers will (1) Set clear goals; (2) Make clear/doable plans; (3) Work hard, (4) Persist, and (5) Achieve. The expectations will include academics, behavior/professionalism, extracurricular activities, attendance, and leadership.
Four B’s: We have learned that consistency in learning is about the day to day details of our work. How we respect ourselves (be respectful) and each other, how we take ownership (be responsible) for our work, how we keep safety in mind at all times (be safe), and how we push to make ourselves and our work production better each day (be proud).
Family: Our campus has always maintained a sense of being more than an academic institution, but a place where students and professionals come together to form familial links. This linkage can be an excellent foundation for growing the culture of excellence that we strive toward. At Batesville elementary, our students are our children, and each professional is a sister or brother, and/or a mother or father throughout each day. We all appreciate our school is a special place to be.
