Principal's Message
Mrs. Joy Davis

Principal Joy Davis

Our vision here at Start Elementary School is a collaborative effort among students, faculty, parents, and the community to provide a caring, stable environment and academic excellence while preparing our pupils for lifelong learning.  We want our school to convey to students and parents, a strong family atmosphere.  It is important for our students to develop the confidence to take risks necessary for learning.  To do this we will, as a school and in each classroom, work towards providing a warm secure environment with established routines, clear boundaries, and high expectations.  Our students will develop respect for each other, other people, property, and campus environment.  We want to help our students to develop an appreciation for a sense of obligation of living in a community whether it is their family, school, or the classroom.  We believe that it is important for our students to work for the common good of a group as well as their self interest. Our teachers will encourage our students to set goals, to plan and assess their own work through teacher-student criteria.  We believe that to be lifelong learners our students need to be confident in the traditional skills of numeracy and literacy.  We will ensure our teachers will provide students with a balanced curriculum promoting academic excellence, mastery, and informational technology.  In achieving our vision, in partnership with our parents, we believe we can develop future citizens to be successful and productive in today’s society.





Our Mission Statement

Students will demonstrate mastery of skills needed to be lifelong learners. It is our system's purpose to develop the whole child to his/her fullest potential. Excellence will be expected from each employee and student in the system.
