Shawanoe Elementary is an amazing school. We have wonderfully smart and creative students, a skilled faculty and staff, and unbelievable parent/family involvement. We take great pride in creating a welcoming school community, both inside our building and beyond.

Below are our Vision (our beliefs long term for our school), our Mission (the beliefs we strive for everyday), and, most importantly, our Core Values (how we behave every single moment of every day). Our Core Values are what we turn to when we make difficult decisions, and are what you will visibly see upon entering the school any day, any time.

Empowering all students to achieve their goals.

Building a community of learners by supporting their social, emotional, and academic growth.

Core Values

  1. We protect students from what they cannot manage and teach students the skills they are missing.
  2. We give grace and work for accountability.
  3. We are committed to collaboration and recognize that teaching is complex; it is a craft.
  4. We know our students.
  5. We are aggressively curious about teaching and learning.
