Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year and our school website. As principal of Country Lane Elementary, I am thrilled to be part of such a vibrant and diverse community dedicated to improving the academic, social, and emotional well-being of all our students. Country Lane Elementary is a transitional kindergarten through fifth-grade school in the Moreland School District. Our school is known for its exemplary staff, responsible, capable students, and involved, supportive parent community.


Each year our staff chooses a focus as a way to embed continuous growth into our profession.  This year we are embracing the Innovator’s Mindset. The premise of the book is that as a staff and as a community we…

  • Invest in Relationships
  • Normalize Struggle as a part of Learning & Growing
  • Emphasize Choice & Provide Time for Reflection
  • Value Sharing

This allows us to pinpoint what is best for each particular learner and to make sure that they leave Country Lane better people because of their experiences in school. This aligns with our school vision as well.


Country Lane's Vision Statement:

Be Curious - Be Kind - Be the Change


Country Lane's Mission Statement:

A Country Lane Elementary education will ensure that:

  • Students exhibit curiosity by asking questions, thinking critically, working hard, and trying new ideas.
  • Students will show kindness by taking care of themselves and others, respecting differences, and being patient and supportive of one another.
  • Students will impact change by finding ways to make a difference for themselves and their community as they work toward a better future.
  • We affirm the uniqueness of each person and value individual ways of existing in the world.  We are committed to understanding how personal, cultural, and historical aspects of identity contribute to and enrich our school community.

Country Lane's Goals:

The Country Lane staff will build on this premise by actively investigating and refining our skill set through the lens of:

  • instruction that engages all students
  • systemic, rigorous expectations with support to help all students succeed
  • a school climate that promotes physical and emotional well-being
  • diversity and inclusion by respecting and recognizing individual and cultural differences

We believe that with a strong and positive home-school connection, your children will have the best opportunity to reach their potential, both academically and socially. We look forward to working with you to achieve a positive year, full of learning and growing. We value your input, ideas, questions, and concerns. Together we make a powerful team.  


On behalf of the entire staff, we welcome you to Country Lane Elementary. We are privileged to work with you and your child and look forward to a year filled with collaborative partnerships and innovative instruction mixed in with a healthy dose of fun in order to continue to nurture the strong and vibrant culture of Country Lane.
