Sierra School Goals

1) Increase student learning in English language arts and math by organizing the standards, creating meaningful assessment and quality instruction.
2) Support and challenge students with differentiated instruction, content, and strategies in the areas of math and English language arts.
3) Work collaboratively as a staff to create an environment that promotes and achieves at high levels.
Mission Statement
Sierra Suns inspire confidence, empower each other, respect diversity, reach for knowledge, and achieve academic excellence.
Technology Oriented
Sierra has three computer labs as well as projectors, document cameras, Smartboards, and Thinkpads in every classroom. We are working to use technology as innovation.  Some examples would be students exploring coding and engineering challenges as well as digital posters and other products of their learning.
The 3 B's
The 3 B's is a school-wide program based on the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework.  Staff and students worked to create the 3Bs.  We monitor how the program is going and ask for feedback from staff, students, and families.
Parent Involvement
Sierra has an amazing community.  Our families are involved in a variety of ways.  Our PTO encourages families to participate and attend the monthly meetings.  Once the school year begins, teachers will create schedules for classroom volunteers.  Our front office staff does trainings on how to use the various items in the workroom as well.  We can't wait to see you!
