“Respect, Courtesy, and Cooperation to All!”
Lighthouse Elementary School Vision of the School We Strive to Create
PS 106Q VISION OF THE SCHOOL WE STRIVE TO CREATE
PS 106 scholars and educators spend their day in a dynamic, consistent, and joyful environment which equally nurtures and pushes students towards becoming their best self. Through innovative scheduling within the school day, and an emphasis on creating remedial and enrichment learning opportunities, we will maximize the time students receive direct instruction from highly- qualified teachers and ensure that, in every moment in which they are in our care and under our supervision, students are learning. In line with our beliefs that all members of our community are teachers, we will also hold frequent parent workshops and family enrichment activities to engage our family partners in school life in ways that contribute directly to increasing student achievement and growth.
In order to fulfill the fundamental purpose of helping all our students learn at high levels and making success an everyday occurrence, we are dedicated to creating a school in which:
There is a safe and orderly environment for both students and adults.
Every teacher, parent, and student is clear on the knowledge and skills students are expected to acquire in each course, grade level, and unit of instruction.
The learning of each student is monitored on a timely basis. When students experience difficulty, the school has structures in place to ensure they receive additional time and support for learning.
There is a climate of high expectations for student success, and staff members communicate their high expectations to students, parents, and one another.
A collaborative culture ensures staff members work together, interdependently to better meet the needs of their students and analyze and improve their professional practice. Frequent reporting of student progress toward explicit learning outcomes helps staff members and parents take collective responsibility for student learning.
Structures are created to promote widely dispersed leadership throughout the school.
All staff members continually grow in their professional expertise because structures to support their ongoing, job-embedded learning and continuous improvement are built into the school day and school year.
Students and adults alike believe their efforts, improvements, and achievements will be recognized and celebrated.
