Greetings and Welcome to Johnston Square Elementary School!
I would like to welcome you to Johnston Square Elementary School. This is the place where excellence is the expectation. Our goal is very simple: We want to create a dynamic learning environment where students can learn and grow.
At Johnston Square Elementary School, we will show students how much we care through our expectations of excellence. We expect our students to be ready, respectful and responsible. We expect parents to participate as equal partners in their child’s learning. We expect our students to do their best!
We are a close knit school community, so it is my goal to give families the personal attention you deserve. Our doors are always open for you to come in and visit your child. Please do not be a stranger to our website to keep abreast of the exciting things that will be happening at our school.
Collectively we can revamp our school’s belief system and vision to create a successful environment for our children.
Our new vision is
At JSE, our daily mission is to provide meaningful learning experiences that show passion for the subject we teach, patience with our students and opportunities for deep practice so our students will become critical thinkers, readers and writers.
Throughout out the year, you will be able to see evidence of our new vision and mission. I hope you find this website useful as I continue to improve the ability to communicate with you. I will update this site monthly with upcoming events and reports. If you have any questions in the interim, please give us a call 410-396-1477 or stop by the school. Once again, I am humbled by the opportunity to serve you.
