Mendell Family Council Predicted Fundraising Initiatives 2018-2019

Vision: The Mendell School is dedicated to educating a diverse, inclusive community through rigorous and equitable learning experiences that create lifelong learners who stand tall as a mighty force for good in their neighborhoods.

School Priorities SY 2018-2019

In order to realize our vision for ALL learners, the Mendell School is focusing on:

  • Developing a culture of achievement by standardizing expectations for excellence in oral and written production, regularly engaging students in cognitively demanding tasks requiring them to think critically and persevere in problem solving and providing consistent, actionable feedback.
  • Fostering excellence in character through consistent and coherent implication of Tier 1 climate (PBIS) practices and culturally responsive Social Emotional Learning instruction.  

Additionally, as outlined in our Mission, the Mendell is committed to developing well-rounded students through exposure to the arts, science, physical education and technology to prepare our students for participation in our society.
