• Philosophy

     

    We, the faculty and administration of Lenkerville Elementary School, accept each child we educate as a unique individual.  As each child enters our school district, they bring with them their own perception of their environment.  We strive to enhance and guide the continuing development of their knowledge of our world.

     

    As educators, we believe in active process.  We progressively work toward the goal of helping each child reach their full potential, utilizing all their abilities and identifying their own special needs.  By assisting the child to develop self-awareness and responsibility, we prepare the child to take an active roll in the community in which they are a part.

     

    Learning takes place not through rote memorization, but through experiencing, questioning, investigating, and responding to various concepts and ideas.  By endeavoring to provide a stimulating atmosphere, we encourage a positive attitude toward education.
