Our mission is to INSPIRENURTURECHALLENGE, and PREPARE our students.  We offer our students a multitude of opportunities to think criticallyact compassionatelywork meaningfullychoose wisely, and live joyfully.  From running the 100 meter dash in physical education, while practicing for cross country or track, to reading the latest Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl book, we do our best to enrich our students lives inside and outside the school building.

We encourage all students to embody our PBIS 4R's representing what it means to be a Red Elephant.  They practice being READY when they enter the classroom, RESPECTFUL to classmates and adults, RESPONSIBLE for themselves and their actions, and a ROLE MODELS for others.
