We believe there are multiple intelligences and each student has the potential for the expression of a unique mixture of talents (gifts). The East Elementary staff will assist students in reaching their potential by developing creative, critical thinkers and self-directed learners. We promote lifelong learning in a supportive, interactive, and culturally diverse community that values wellness. As such, our school environment will be socially, emotionally, and physically safe for all students and school personnel. Every individual and group within East Elementary will be responsible for maintaining this environment through the use of empathy and respect for all members of the community.
