Our Narrative, Our Mission, and Our Beliefs
Our Mission / Narrative
Our mission here at Johnson Elementary is to help our students discover their purpose and guide them as their stories unfold. Our mission and our district mission at Scott 2 is providing “your path to a brighter future.” An important part of our story is the career path we choose. Scott 2 provides four paths: Path to Business Ownership, Path to College, Path to Military, and Path to Workforce. These paths help shape the future for our students and what they want to do long after their time here at Johnson Elementary.
In addition to guiding students to their path, we also focus on the overall well-being of a student and preparing them for the real world. We believe at Johnson we shape the future for our children. What we do everyday will have an impact on our kids for a lifetime, which is why we focus on being a “HERO”. Teaching our students how to be Honest, Engaged, Respectful, and Organized. Focusing our attention on the positive behaviors of our students and praising those for being a HERO today. We celebrate the success of our students in hope that we prepare them to be successful individuals of tomorrow.
We live in a community in need of positivity and with our HERO program we feel we are creating positivity and experiences for our students that may never get to experience on their own. By creating these moments and opportunities we are showing our students and our community there is plenty in the world and in our community to celebreate and be proud of.
