A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL:
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Ann J. Kellogg Elementary School! The faculty and staff join me in saying we're happy to have you as part of the family. Our philosophy is based on the idea that the purpose of education is to provide a continuation of essential learning. It is our ultimate goal is to supply each student with basic facts and experiences which will aid our youth in becoming self-sufficient individuals mentally, physically, socially, and morally so that they can meet the demands of a rapidly changing society. It is essential to instill in each student, the importance of worth and to create a positive self-image through the personal development of initiative, resourcefulness, and responsibility.
It is also the intent of the faculty to lead students toward being disciplined, productive, informed, and fulfilled individuals. To achieve these ideals, mutual respect and understanding must be present in the learning process on the part of all stakeholders--the faculty, students, parents and the community. Together, we can create positive and productive experiences for our students!
The Ann J. Kellogg family will work together to maintain high academic and behavioral expectations through an intense process of assessment, evaluation, planning and instruction. The families and staff of Ann J. Kellogg will ensure all students reach their fullest academic, behavioral and emotional potential.
One Team! One Dream! Engage! Inspire! Achieve!
