Message from the Elementary Principal

Jessica Schuette Dear Families,

I am excited to welcome each of you to the beginning of a new school year at Crestview Elementary.  As educators, we are focused on making sure every student is college and/or career ready upon graduation.  This work starts at the elementary level.  At the elementary, we believe all children can academically excel when learning is meaningful and connections are made to their lives and experiences.  We strive to obtain resources to meet the needs of all students, establishing high expectations, and providing support so each student can achieve his or her goals and feel empowered.  We believe in not only supporting students academically but also socially, building character and leadership skills that give children a sense of community.  To develop leadership, our staff focuses on teaching seven habits found in effective leaders from the book The Leader in Me, by Stephen R. Covey. Our teachers work with children to teach the habits and to embed the habits as an integral part of our school’s culture. We believe that every student has within them the potential to academically excel, become proficient readers, and lead others as they develop and grow in the seven habits.  Thus, our elementary school theme this year, “Today a reader, tomorrow a Leader”.  

The foundation of a successful school is built upon the cooperation between students, staff, parents, and the community.  We believe that parents and the community are vital members of Crestview Elementary.  As the staff works with students to help them learn about the world around them, we appreciate the support that parents give their children at home as they strive to reach their learning goals.  We look forward to working with parents and community members to provide a high-quality education for each child.

Our goal is to ensure that all students become problem-solvers, inquisitive readers, skilled writers, and collaborators.  We do all of this to prepare our students to become productive citizens and future leaders who contribute back to this wonderful community.

Jessica Schuette
