Our Vision (What Do We Hope to Become?)

We, the learning community at Moreno Elementary School, embrace our diversity and commit to the tenets of a Professional Learning Community. We will provide a highly qualified staff who will collaborate, utilizing effective and appropriate strategies, interventions and assessments for optimal student learning. Educators in partnership with staff, families, and the community will provide for the education, safety, and well-being of all students.

Our Values (How Must We Behave?)
In order to advance Moreno’s shared vision of an exemplary school, we will:
  • Promote a safe and positive school climate by modeling the qualities and characteristics that we hope to instill in our students.
  • Make full use of the instructional time allotted to us.
  • Collaborate with one another and our students so that we can achieve our collective goals more effectively.
  • Demonstrate our commitment to ongoing professional development and continuous improvement.
  • Help all students achieve the intended outcomes of the curriculum by addressing their individual needs and learning styles.
  • Use effective assessment methods to provide evidence of student achievement, to monitor the learning of individual students, to adjust instruction based on results, and to provide supportive and timely feedback, based on student strengths, for students to meet more standards and improve achievement.
  • Involve parents in the education of their children by keeping them informed of student progress and offering suggestions for assisting their children.
  • Provide an inviting classroom environment for students – an environment with clear expectations, consistent consequences, and specific, articulated, academic goals.
