New Arnold Mission and Vision Statements, Collective Commitments

The Arnold staff has been working to update our Mission and Vision statements to better reflect the work that we do now. Our goal was to develop a Mission Statement that we could share with students, families and the community. We are excited to have a new Mission Statement that is short and powerful…so excited in fact that we are going to paint it on the walls! Check it out here:


Mission Statement


Dream it! Believe it! Achieve it!


Vision Statement


Arnold Elementary is a culturally diverse community of students, educators, and families who work together with the belief that all students can learn and succeed. We are dedicated to developing life-long learners who are critical thinkers, technologically fluent, and able to problem solve through perseverance. Students learn to collaborate and communicate effectively through active practice opportunities. Our school vision is best reflected in the Arnold Pledge:


A ccept all people

R espect yourself and others

N ever give up

O pen the door to opportunity

L earning is the key to success

D ream your future and make it happen


By encouraging students to be respectful, responsible, and safe, we foster a community of fairness and acceptance, and prepare students to be productive citizens now and in the future.





At Arnold Elementary School, student learning is our main objective.


We will...

Maintain a positive environment.

Be flexible and open to new ideas.

Be caring and compassionate.

Be collaborative and share in each other’s successes and challenges, strategies and ideas.

Serve our students, our team, and our school in a supportive environment.

Provide a high quality education for every student through:

  • Rigor
  • Differentiation
  • Assessment FOR learning (student reflection)
  • Timely feedback
  • Parent communication
  • Data driven decisions
