Way Elementary School

Belief sets are at play in every school. Some refer to it as a vision, others to a mission. Setting aside outdated educational practices of the past, at Way Elementary we nurture a culture of thinking and compassion by embracing the Visible Thinking framework.

In This We Believe at Way Elementary

  • Focusing students on the learning vs. the work
  • Teaching for understanding vs. mere knowledge
  • Encouraging deep vs. surface learning strategies
  • Promoting independence vs. dependence
  • Developing a growth vs. fixed mindset

Our job is not to make up anybody's mind, but to open minds and to make the agony of the decision making so intense you can escape only by thinking. - Fred Friendly


Way News:

Please remember to send a pair of gym shoes for physical education class. No boots or muddy recess shoes will be allowed in the gym for the safety of the students. Please check the schedule so you know when your child has physical education class. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Each day Way's doors open at 8:50 a.m. and instruction begins at 9:05 a.m. If you are dropping off your child as opposed to the bus, please do not drop off before 8:50 a.m. as staff coverage begins at that time. Latchkey is available for students needing an earlier drop off. We want to keep our students safe and comfortable. No child should be outside waiting at the entrance for the doors to open.
