Welcome to the 2018-2019 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. With over 600 students, Country Lane Elementary is a transitional kindergarten through fifth grade school in the Moreland School District. Our school, recognized multiple times as a California Distinguished School, is known for its exemplary staff, responsible, capable students, and involved, supportive parent community.
This year we are launching our new school wide vision: Be curious. Be kind. Be the change! Together, we will work to breathe life into our vision by creating goals in order to awaken these words in both in the classroom and around campus. We emphasize a growth mindset and resilience to help foster our daily efforts.
Country Lane is dedicated to providing our students with 1) instruction that engages all students equitably; 2) systemic, rigorous expectations with supports to help all students succeed, and 3) a school climate that promotes physical and emotional well-being. Country Lane teachers and support staff work collaboratively with colleagues, as well as, our parent community to foster a school culture based on respect, responsibility and safe behavior. Please go to our Programs tab and click on Colts Can (PBIS) to learn more.
At Country Lane we are extremely fortunate to have families who are committed to the understanding that education is the foundation of success for their child and willing to provide support both in and out of the classroom. The home school connection is pivotal to the growth and progress of all our students. Please visit our For Families tab to explore various ways to get involved. We look forward to working with you to provide the best possible experience for your child.
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.
