The mission of Owen Elementary is to provide a quality learning experience for every student. The goal is to provide students with the necessary skills to not only be successful in the classroom but also in the future. Owen Elementary strives to build a partnership with students and their families to ensure the educational success of every student.
At Owen, we focus on providing resources to help teachers build their instructional capacity to better serve students. We are proud to be an A+ school and have two nationally board-certified teachers on our team -- an incredibly rigorous and notable achievement. Our teachers collaborate frequently to share experiences and ideas that provide more opportunity for students to express themselves in the classroom. Students benefit from this culture by setting goals that keep them engaged throughout the year.
A supportive environment
Creating high-quality learning experiences means educating the whole child by meeting his or her social, emotional, and academic needs. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions.
With strong social and emotional skills, our students will be able to set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
We love to see parents get involved with our students' learning, because we know that a parent is a child's first teacher. We host various events throughout the year to keep parents engaged and up-to-date on their students' progress, including a monthly parent meeting in both English and Spanish. During these events, parents learn tips to keep their children on track with their homework, help them manage stress, and learn organizational skills.
I am an Owen Eagle.
There is nothing I cannot do.
I will make today the very best day of all,
For this day begins the rest of my life.
I will aid my teachers in every way possible,
To ensure that I fly in the right direction.
I realize that if I want to succeed,
I must not run with the wolves,
But soar with the eagles.
I believe the choices I make today affect what I will have,
And what I will do in the tomorrows of my life.
If it is to be, it is up to me.
(Sung to the tune of “Hey Look Us Over")
Hey Owen Eagles,
We're number one!
We work together, making learning fun.
We are respectful and always do our best.
Our parents are grand,
Our teachers all stand a step above the rest.
So, come on all you Eagles,
And soar to new heights,
Show us your courage,
And try with all your might.
We’re flying together whatever the weather
For soon, we’ll leave the nest,
Owen Eagles, We’re the best!
