Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!
Greetings from Baldwin Stocker Elementary where we are working together to make a difference! Our school is a place where children are at the heart of everything we do. Staff, students, and families are dedicated to providing quality work which is engaging, results in students learning meaningful content, and challenges every student to learn more. It is my job as principal to ensure that all our energies are focused on this vision and that our children develop the self-esteem and positive character needed to participate fully in our community of learners.
Our teachers and staff have tremendous passion for the students at Baldwin Stocker. That's evident based on the positive relationships that we have established with our community. Parents are our partners. We treasure all the ways families contribute to the success of our students: helping with homework, assisting teachers, working with the PTA, keeping children safe on the playground and at pickup, and sending their children to school prepared and excited to learn! In fact, some of our parents and teachers were once students at Baldwin Stocker.
Behind the scenes, Baldwin Stocker professionals work diligently at using current research as well as collaborative conversations to strengthen our instructional program. We value the process that allows us to make decisions together while respecting our unique strengths. There is no one right answer, but we strive to find the way that leads to optimal student learning.
Baldwin Stocker is a school that celebrates success with an eye on the future. We care deeply about each other and foster that respect and compassion in the lives of our children. Whether we are focused on academics, behavior, or social interactions, goals are established, often met, and then new goals are set to respond to the needs of our children. This is the continuing cycle of our work. We recognize that we are all growing in this ever-changing world.
See you at school!
