Vision

  • We, the staff of Mason Crest Elementary School, recognize that the fundamental purpose of our school is to ensure high levels of learning for all – students and adults. If through our collective effort, we are able to fulfill that purpose, our students will have the knowledge, skills, and dispositions essential to pursuing their goals and dreams throughout their lives.

Goals

  • We will establish indicators of progress and strategies for monitoring those indicators. To ensure a process for monitoring progress we will set clear schoolwide goals (aligned with the division’s goals) and every collaborative team will translate one or more goals into a goal for the team that is Strategic and specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-oriented and Time-bound (SMART).
