Superintendent’s Welcome

Welcome!  We have begun this year’s adventure. On behalf of the Esmeralda County School board and administration you are once again invited to participate in one of the most important experiences of your life, another chapter in educating a child. There is no greater investment for a child, certainly no greater reward for a parent, and no greater vocation for educators and support staff. The school community is dedicated to making this experience the best ever. ☺

To our students: I wish to offer a special welcome. You are the greatest. Your parents and educational community devote so much of their life for your welfare. We love you and want the very best for you. I understand that some are wishing this summer had not ended. Balancing school academics, time with friends, family, athletics etc. is challenging. It will be hard but I know you can do it; the experiences will prepare you for life after school. Be proud of your school. Be your very best; remember your school will only be as good as you are.  ☺

To our parents: Thank you sharing your children with us. It is an honor. The educational staff has children and grandchildren also. We know how much they mean to you. With your help we can assist your child in working towards their full potential; just as if they were our own. Your partnership with your school is essential. Please visit with your teachers to see how you can serve in classrooms and committees. You are always welcome in your school.  ☺

 

To our staff:  I hope you enjoyed a well-deserved few weeks for yourself and with family and friends. I know it is never enough but remember your students are eagerly waiting for you to help them “be all they can be”. A caring adult other than parents makes a huge difference in their life. You will hear me say it often and it bears repeating: there is nothing more important in this life than what you do. There is nothing that will impact this world more than what you do. It is the greatest calling on earth. Thank you for being a part of the Esmeralda School District educational community and our lives.  ☺

Vision, Mission, Belief Statements
VISION STATEMENT
We envision a highly effective district-wide safe and orderly Professional Learning Community that results in a premier school of highly engaged and highly motivated students preparing for High School and 21st Century College, Career and Citizenship responsibilities.

MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to create a safe and orderly environment with a highly effective PK-8 district-wide Professional Learning Community that appropriately delivers NVCCSS to a rural student population that will result in a 100% graduation of eighth grade students adequately prepared for High School responsibilities.

Belief Statements
WE BELIEVE that all students can learn at high levels.
1. WE BELIEVE that this can best be achieved by becoming and performing as Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). We will be guided by three questions:
a. What is it we want our students to learn?
b. How will we know our students have learned?
c. What will we do when they do not learn?
2. WE BELIEVE in providing a learning environment that fosters citizenship, a high level of health and physical fitness; and one that supports a moral/ethical approach to the challenges of our current society, to college and to career readiness.
3. WE BELIEVE in providing a learning environment that fosters respect for social and individual diversity.
4. WE BELIEVE that “Family and Community Engagement in Public Schools” is critical to student success.
