Rudolph G. Gordon Elementary Mission Statement

The mission of Rudolph G. Gordon Elementary School, in cooperation with home and community, is to prepare children to become lifelong learners and responsible, productive citizens by creating meaningful learning experiences in a safe, nurturing environment.

We believe:

1) All children can learn.

2) All children should be given learning opportunities to meet their unique needs, gifts, and learning styles in order to reach their full potential.

3) Education is a shared responsibility involving students, teachers and staff, parents, and community members.

4) School should be a safe and nurturing environment where the cultures and customs of families are respected.

5) Educational experiences should encourage students to learn to communicate effectively, solve problems competently, think critically and creatively, and act responsibly.
