INTRODUCTION
Russell H. Emge Elementary School is committed to providing the very best education for each student who attends our school. Our mission statement is based on three major tenets: Values, Beliefs, and Goals. The following statements will serve as our guide as we meet the needs of our students each day.
 
VALUES
The Russell H. Emge Elementary School community holds its values dear. We value every member of the community for their unique skills and perspectives they bring to Emge. We value the character and educational development of all children. We strive for personal excellence by challenging and supporting one another. We recognize that children are individuals and we will treat them with respect.
 
BELIEFS
Children are unique and have potential within themselves.
Instruction will be meaningful, relevant, and child-centered to create life-long learners.
The staff, students, and parents will ensure a safe, positive, and nurturing school environment.
In order for our school to be effective, we must foster a close partnership between the community and the school.
 
GOALS
Community, staff, and Emge families will work together to create a welcoming and respectful environment which continually strives for and promotes academic achievement, the value of education, the opportunity for all students to develop according to their individual needs, and enables students to become positive contributors of a diverse community dedicated to lifelong learning.
