Welcome to Orofino Elementary School
“Mini-Maniacs are Focused on Learning!”
Orofino Elementary School’s Vision is to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through development-appropriate instruction that allows for creativity, problem solving, individual differences, and learning styles. Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment. Students’ growth and self-esteem are fostered by positive relationships with students and staff. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved in our students’ learning.
ALL STUDENTS CAN LEARN AND EACH IS A VALUED INDIVIDUAL WITH UNIQUE PHYSICAL, SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND INTELLECTUAL NEEDS. STUDENT LEARNING, IN THE CORE ACADEMIC CURRICULUM, IS THE PRIORITY OF OROFINO ELEMENTARY. SCHOOLS DEVELOP CONFIDENT, SELF-DIRECTED, LIFELONG LEARNERS WHO WILL BECOME RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS IN TOMORROW’S WORKFORCE AND COMMUNITY. SCHOOLS TEACH TO, AND MODEL A UNIVERSAL SET OF BASIC VALUES: HONESTY, SELF-DISCIPLINE, RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, AND A STRONG WORK ETHIC. SCHOOLS PROVIDE A SAFE, POSITIVE, ORGANIZED SETTING WITH CLEARLY DEFINED BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS. PARENTS ARE THE FIRST AND PRIMARY TEACHERS. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN’S BASIC NEEDS AND VALUES. ALL OROFINO ELEMENTARY EMPLOYEES ARE EDUCATIONAL PROFESSIONALS, RESPECTED FOR THEIR SKILLS AND COMMITTED TO STUDENT LEARNING. THEY ARE ESSENTIAL TO THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE SCHOOL’S MISSION. THE COMMUNITY AND THE SCHOOLS ARE REFLECTED IN EACH OTHER. MUTUAL SUPPORT, PARTICIPATION, AND PARTNERING ARE NECESSARY.
