Dear Parents and Students,
At Lisa J. Mails Elementary School, we bring H.E.A.R.T. (Harmony, Empathy, Achievement, Reflection, and Transformation) into everything we do. This mission is an important part of our day-to-day activities and our entire school’s culture. Our teachers have agreed to uphold and model the components of H.E.A.R.T. in an effort to fully bring this vision to life for our students.
In addition to promoting a strong academic foundation, Lisa J. Mails Elementary School has an additional emphasis on the Visual and Performing Arts. The arts are addressed through both integration within the regular curriculum and focused study on the various arts in and of themselves. Students at Lisa J. Mails Elementary School will be exposed to regular, standards-based instruction in dance, visual art, drama, and music. Our staff is committed to the power of the arts in the lives of our students.
The Lisa J. Mails Elementary School community has embedded Visual and Performing Arts into our overall identity. We work hard to utilize this arts focus to impact students’ self-esteem, critical thinking skills, social awareness, and academic achievement. Like our mascot, the Monarch, we are ready to fly and to experience the excitement and energy of this important transformation in our students’ lives.
