Prepare to Take Flight!
Hunters Creek Elementary School faculty, staff, and student body are inspired by a shared vision of “Excellence in Educating the Whole Child.” This vision allows us to focus on meeting the needs of diverse students in our classroom and ensuring that we provide an education that prepares them for the 21st Century.
The Hunters Creek community is prepared to do the work necessary to reach the vision we have adopted. Our focus on continuous improvement in all areas of teaching and learning will be the guiding force for the achievement of our vision. Processes that include the development of effective daily instructional practices, the use of assessment practices, and the implementation of instructional support programs will aid in educating the whole child. Students will have access to resource teachers, specialists, and counseling to address their social and academic needs.
To develop 21st Century citizens, the Hunters Creek Elementary faculty will continue to use emerging technologies and visionary instructional programs and practices. The continued use of STEM as an instructional theme will give students the opportunity to make choices in units of study and will elevate the academic program. The faculty seeks programs for students to develop their collaboration skills by offering 1st Robotics competitive teams, Odyssey of the Mind, and STEM Academy throughout the school year. Global studies will become a part of the academic program at Hunters Creek Elementary. Language immersion and cultural studies will challenge studies to perform at higher levels as they expand their thinking and open their minds to the world in which they live.
The 21st Century will require a different kind of citizen; one who collaborates, creates, and communicates with others to continue the advancement of our world. The Hunters Creek community is prepared to embrace this challenge and educate all students, completely and thoroughly, so that they can become an integral part of tomorrow’s society.
