o    At The Mary R. Fisher Elementary School, we respect each child as a unique individual. Our school is an environment where there is an appropriate program and place ment for each child depending on the child's needs, abilities, learning style and rate of learning. It is our commitment to receive the child, with empathy at his/her stage of development and to guide him/her through these formative years with intelligence and compassion.

We will consider the academic and physical needs and will work toward an open, relaxed and individualized learning climate where each child can progress to his/her optimum ability developing and acquiring new skills and interests necessary to becoming a life-long learner.

Finally, we believe that children learn not only through experiences but also from models with whom they live, work and play. We commit ourselves to providing opportunities for children to develop satisfying and creative ways to utilize leisure time to benefit of themselves and society. As a staff we shall work toward becoming models of self-discipline and responsibility. We believe this will help each child see the importance of these vital processes and provide the ground work for him/her to exercise these ideals throughout the formal school experience and beyond.
