  About The School  

A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to Harrand Creek's web site.  Our school is an extraordinary place where children come first. Harrand Creek is a progressive school that provides quality education in a warm, nurturing environment. Throughout the school year, our students participate in varied classroom and school-wide activities which support our belief in developing the whole child. We strive to provide many opportunities for maximum student achievement while also recognizing the efforts, talents, and successes of our students.  Housed in our beautiful facility are competent professionals who are committed to the progress of our students. In addition to our teachers, we have a dedicated support staff. Together we work to achieve the best for children.  We believe that close cooperation between home and school is essential in promoting positive attitudes toward learning. We are indeed partners in the important job of educating the children.  We welcome and encourage parental involvement and community support. 


Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a safe, child-centered environment that fosters self-esteem and self-discipline, and establishes skills for maximum achievement as students and citizens.


Our Beliefs

1.  Student learning is the chief priority for the school; and students' learning needs are the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school.

2.  All students can learn.

3.  Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning.

4.  Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process.

5.  Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.

6.  A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.

7.  Cultural diversity can increase students' understanding of different peoples and cultures.  

8.  The commitment of continuous improvement is imperative if our school is going to enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.


Our Goals

1.  Students will continue to consistently improve in reading comprehension and decoding and improve their vocabulary skill.

2.  Students will demonstrate the ability to solve problems in math and continue improvement in math procedures.

3.  Students will be able to communicate effectively both orally and in written form.

4.  Special education students will improve scores.


School-wide Conduct Policy

1. Violation of classroom rules will result in a loss of 5 conduct points for each infraction.

2. When a student's daily conduct grade drops to 65 points, the student must be referred to the principal's office. 

3. Any office referral will result in an automatic 0/F for the week. (So the student drops from a 65 to a 0 automatically.)

4. Students may be allowed to earn conduct points back with good behavior if their conduct does not drop below an 85 in one day.

Individual classrooms also have their own set of rules and consequences.  Consult your child's teacher for more information.
