Mission Statement/Beliefs and School Promise


Candler Elementary School staff, parents, and community will work together to ensure that all our students are prepared to continue on the path toward college and a career of their choosing.  Stakeholders will collaborate to create and maintain a safe, caring, rigorous, and engaging learning environment to fulfill our mission.  Central to this mission is our school promise:

“At Candler School, we are a family of life-long learners.  

We will show Caring, positive Attitude, Teamwork

and Self-Control.

We are the Candler CATS even when no one is watching!”

    1. Promoting daily interaction with caring, competent, and enthusiastic role models.
    2. Engaging in hands-on activities, questions, problem solving, and making significant connections to the ever-changing global community.
    3. Involving the family, community, and school as partners, sharing and collaborating about learning.
