Our Mission & Vision
Our Mission

The mission of River East Elementary School is to support a dynamic and nurturing community of learners that draws upon its own creative talents and the resources of its community.  We work as a collaborative unit of parents, faculty, and staff to ensure that all students read well, write and speak effectively, and reason with competence and confidence.  We have high standards for all students and we honor their individual learning styles and interests.  We value the learning process in providing an inclusive, child-centered environment that inspires and challenges all of our students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers through exploration and discussion.  Our educational program is designed to foster personal resourcefulness and integrity, a sense of social responsibility, self-confidence, and a lifelong appreciation of learning.

Our Vision
Our School motto is "We are a part of something much greater then ourselves." Our students will read vigorously, write and speak in a unique and strong voice, and manipulate numbers with competence and confidence. Our students will also explore art, music, dance, and theater in an effort to find at least one they are passionate about for life.
