Statements of Success

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The Mission of the Robert Seaman Elementary School is to promote a community of students, family, and staff who will address the changing physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs of elementary-aged youngsters and direct their energy and vitality toward the realization of mastery level performance.

To achieve this, we will maintain high expectations for all and develop programs which foster critical thinking, problem solving, curiousity, an appreciation of the natural world, and the ability to adapt to our ever-changing global society.

We will embrace all culture and foster programs to build self-esteem. We will recognize our responsibilities to ourselves, our families, our community, our country and our worlds.
