SHREVE ISLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

A Commitment to Learning & Leadership -

Where Learning Never Stops!

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Shreve Island Elementary is to build and nurture a community of leaders who respect differences, value academics, and strive for personal excellence.

WELCOME

Shreve Island Elementary School is a recognized school of excellence.  Students and teachers participate in the leadership development program entitled THE LEADER IN ME, based on Steven Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.  THE LEADER IN ME helps develop positive habits that can last a lifetime.  For more information, visit www.leaderinme.org.

Shreve Island was selected as the first elementary school in Caddo Parish to receive the U.S. Department of Education's Blue Ribbon School Award.  In addition, Shreve Island is the only school in Louisiana that has received the International Reading Association's Exemplary Reading Program Award three times.

Blue Ribbon Schools offer instructional programs that meet the highest academic standards, have supportive and learning-centered school environments, and demonstrate student outcome results that are significantly above the average of comparable schools. This is the highest and most prestigious honor that a school can receive. The award was presented to the school staff by the President of the United States during a ceremony in Washington D.C.

Shreve Island is one of two Caddo Parish School participating in Year-Round Education. Students attend class for approximately nine weeks and then have intersession breaks. In 2014-2015, intersession breaks are in October, January, and April/May.  Intersession day camps will be held for one week each in October and April. Shreve Island takes the same holidays as the other Caddo schools. Additional information on the Year-Round Program and a calendar are available in the school office or on this web site under "Documents."

The Shreve Island school philosophy encompasses the premise that all children can learn and deserve a quality education. Given the appropriate opportunities, all children can succeed as they move toward mastery of basic academic skills and higher order thinking. The belief is held that as we help children assume responsibility for their own behavior, they will learn to respect authority and the rights of others. They will learn to become effective, productive citizens who can and will preserve a free society. School-based decision-making encourages attainment of these goals by offering a partnership based on mutual respect between the staff, the students, home, community, and business persons. This partnership leads the school family to success in an atmosphere-WHERE LEARNING NEVER STOPS!
