At Vedder Elementary, we strive to ensure that our "Vedder Bears have kind hearts and curious minds".
Attached you will find our School Growth Plan for the years 2021-2025. Although it looks pretty official, please understand that it is a living document meaning that it will continue to evolve as the needs of our students change. Our staff will revisit this document and as a team, we will make the changes needed to ensure our focus continues to be on meeting the needs of our students.
Our Growth Plan is purposeful in it's alignment with our District Strategic Plan which has the following priorities:
Literacy: We are dedicated to ensuring that students are proficient in foundational literacy skills and increase their abilities, confidence and willingness to engage with language to acquire, construct, and communicate in meaningful ways.
Numeracy: We are dedicated to ensuring that all students become proficient in numeracy skills that allow them to create, apply, and conceptualize mathematics in real world situations.
Human and Social Development: We celebrate diversity, embrace inclusion and foster a sense of belonging to ensure all students thrive. Equity and inclusion are foundational to learning and leading, and are critical to success, wellbeing and fulfillment.
Transitions: Students experience pivotal transition points throughout their education, from pre-K to Kindergarten, from grade to grade, and from school to school. We acknowledge our responsibility to support all learners, so they successfully complete their education with a sense of dignity and purpose, and opportunities to meet their goals.
If you have any questions or suggestions involving our School Growth Plan, please don't hesitate to contact Mrs. Tracy Wagner, Principal, Vedder Elementary School.
