About Alexander Elementary
The most successful children are those whose parents play an active role in their education. We are all in this ...TOGETHER! The mission of Alexander Elementary is to create student success through directed teaching and hands-on, concrete experiences for all learners with parent and community support.
At Alexander Elementary School believing in ourselves is the first step to school success. The staff believes that when students see themselves successful, they will strive for a higher level of performance each day. The entire faculty and staff believe that each child is important. All children can and will learn and each requires differing amounts of time and practice. We believe in encouraging positive behavior by rewarding positive student behaviors. Our goal is to "catch students being good." In this way, we hope to help children become positive, self-confident citizens who will become credits to their families, school, and community.
