A message from our Principal, Dr. Sarah Chavez Gibson:
I am excited and honored to welcome each and every one of you to the beginning of a new school year at Stanton Elementary School. This school year will be a year of setting and reaching attainable goals, working harder and smarter and taking our school and student achievement to the next level of “GREATNESS”. At Stanton we are dedicated to a student-centered program that promotes academic excellence through an enriched, rigorous inter-disciplinary curriculum. As a staff, we are here to support all of you, by any means necessary, to ensure you reach your fullest academic potential. We look forward to working with you, our parents and the members of the community to provide a high-quality education that you all deserve.
This year, you can look forward to encountering a highly intensive and challenging academic program that will push you to work beyond your limits. However, I am confident that all of you have the capacity and ability to meet our expectations and the demands of your new classes and teachers. Our goal is to ensure that all students become critical thinkers, active problem-solvers, inquisitive readers, diligent researchers and prolific writers. We do all of this to prepare you for the demands of the real-world so you may become productive citizens, become our future leaders, and contribute and/or give back something positive to the community.
I look forward to working with all of you and pushing you to all academic heights. On behalf of the staff of Stanton Elementary School, I want to again welcome all of you and thank you for being a part of the Stanton Elementary School community where SUCCESS IS NOT AN OPTION…..BUT AN EXPECTATION. We are truly on the path to GREATNESS.
“The greatest sign of success for a teacher ... is to be able to say, ‘The children are now working as if I did not exist.’” -- Maria Montessor
