Kathy L. Batterman Elementary
We, the community of Kathy L. Batterman Elementary School, dedicate ourselves to making a difference by creating a positive safe environment. Each child will achieve academic success and a love for learning by building connections through writing across the curriculum and inquiry-based instruction.
We do not take learning for granted. We feel that learning occurs best when certain beliefs are in place. At Kathy L. Batterman Elementary School, we believe that teachers should collaborate to strengthen instruction. We also believe that strong community support is vital to build an outstanding school. Additionally, we believe that writing and inquiry-based instruction are the two strong foundations to quality learning. Remember that our goals as parents and school personnel are the same: to provide the best possible education for every child, and to remove every roadblock which stands in the way of that education. We will use every available means to ensure that instruction is the primary reason for our being here. We look forward to a wonderful year and hope that we will mirror Kathy Batterman’s passion for excellence.
At Vassiliadis Elementary School, we want every man, woman, and child that enters into the Home of the Cubs to have the energy, positivity, and enthusiasm that will promote a climate of growth and achievement. One where everyone is excited about school and driven to be kind and always do their best. Following these simple rules will not only allow our Vassiliadis Cubs to have choice in life and move mountains, but put a great big smile on their faces…and we all know that smiling is contagious!
At Billy & Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary School, we believe in designing opportunities for children that will give them the necessary tools to blaze the path of college and career readiness. We believe in shared leadership and consistent use of out of the box methods to deliver our students the once in a lifetime education that will prepare them for 21st century jobs. Funding tends to be the only obstacle in providing the additional personnel and materials that are needed to provide our children with the first rate education that they deserve; which is why our fundraising efforts, which include grant writing, maximizing our CCSD budgeted funds, seeking donations, and establishing business partnerships are consistent.
