Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the Olive Elementary School website. Please use this website to find information about our school’s mission, the school’s procedures and student expectations, school event information, and staff contacts.

At Olive Elementary, we bring Quantum Learning’s The 8 Keys of Excellence into everything we do. 


INTEGRITY – Match behavior with values
FAILURE LEADS TO SUCCESS – Learn from mistakes
SPEAK WITH GOOD PURPOSE – Speak honestly and kindly
THIS IS IT! – Make the most of every moment
COMMITMENT – Make your dreams happen
OWNERSHIP – Take responsibility for actions
FLEXIBILITY – Be willing to do things differently
BALANCE – Live your best life

 

These values are an important part of our day to day activities and our entire school’s culture. Our teachers have agreed to uphold and model the 8 Keys of Excellence to further promote the success of our learners and they prepare for college, careers and life.  

In addition to promoting a strong academic foundation, Olive Elementary School has an additional emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship. Olive Elementary is where Students Think BIG, Turning Ideas into Reality! As an early implementer of the Next Generation Science Standards and with a focus on literacy skills, students strive to live out our mission to ‘Inspire every learner to persevere as a critical thinker who collaborates to solve real world problems.’  

Our staff is committed towards building a personalized learning pathway for our learners as we incorporate best research based instructional practices, technology integration that promotes differentiation within a blended learning environment, flexible learning environments and learning that integrates the 4 C’s of Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, and Creativity. 

 

At the Home of the Falcons, our learners continue to SOAR (Code of Conduct)--


Strive for Excellence – Always give our best effort
Own Our Choices – Take responsibility for actions
Attitude is Everything – Have a positive, ‘Can do’ attitude
Respect – Kindness matters

 

Sincerely,

Stephanie Vasquez
Olive Elementary, Principal
