Our Vision

  • As an elementary staff, we created our "vision" for what we want to see North Border-Walhalla Elementary become this year.  This is what we came up with.  I'm pretty proud of our staff!

    Our school strives to create a positive learning atmosphere where students can excel, families are welcomed, and all are respected.  We want our students to have a sense of excitement, wonder, and internal drive as they seek excellence in their own learning.   We take care of each other, ourselves, and aren’t afraid to share the load.  We support each other and model that support and trust for our kids.  We appreciate our kids, our staff, and our parents.  We are North Border Walhalla Elementary!

     

  • To help carry out our vision of a great elementary, the teachers chose a theme.  This year it is simply "BE KIND."  We will be working on kindness all year.  Students developed a kindness pledge in their classes and then signed (or will sign soon!) Gilbert as a way of promising to be kind to others.  Gilbert will be rotating from class to class, reminding us to be kind.

  • I am a firm believer in kids getting positive recognition.  This year, we are doing "We all soar!" where students can be referred by a teacher or an adult for modeling self-control, hard work, courage, good attitude, teamwork, citizenship, responsibility, or honesty.

    Kaden was recognized for making good choices in the hallways and showing self control.   He was nominated by Mrs. Smith.  Good job Kaden, you set a good example for others!

    Our first positive referral this year is Christopher L, who was nominated by Mrs. Hardy.  Christopher took the time to help a younger student who had tripped in the hallway, and he made sure the hazard was out of the way for others.  Great example, Christopher!!  Way to go!!

    We all soar!
