Hello to All,
At James Mosher Elementary, children are our #1 priority. All of our decisions are based upon our philosophy of putting the needs of the students above all others. As Managing Principal of James Mosher Elementary School, I take pride in knowing that every staff member facilitates this mission on a daily basis.
Here at James Mosher, we believe that the partnership between parents and school is an integral part of our school community. We not only encourage parent involvement, we NEED it! Throughout the school year you will see the results of parents’ efforts. Whether helping individuals and small groups in the classroom, chaperoning on field trips, supporting during breakfast or lunchtime, or spearheading fundraising and special projects, our James Mosher parents play a vital role in their children’s education. As partners, we share the common goal of nurturing our students and giving each one the greatest head start in the world. Because of this, children will continue to succeed at James Mosher.
I am proud to be a part of James Mosher Elementary School. We have created a professional learning community where teachers love to teach and students love to learn. Dedicated to lifelong learning and on-going professional development, our staff will stay informed about research-based instructional strategies, the Common Core Curriculum, rigorous and engaging instructional lesson planning, exemplary teaching practices, and the need for addressing the social aspects of the developing child.
We, as a school community, will continue to build on our progress and accomplish great things in the year ahead. I am looking forward to having a unique partnership of staff, parents, and students that brings the community together in a very special and positive way. We will always strive to preserve what we know is good for children. This year, we will remain FOCUSED on Every Student, Every Subject, Every Day. Here at James Mosher Elementary School #144, we are committed to providing our community’s children with the very best in education.
