Vision Statement

The Vision Statement was developed by the staff at Dayton Elementary.

Creating a Community of Learners and Leaders.

We believe this vision statement encompasses everything that is important to us at Dayton Elementary. We enjoy and appreciate the partnerships we have in the community, as well as, the community we strive to build in our classrooms and our school. It is important that we not only create learners in our society, but also leaders. This also goes for our staff. We are lifelong learners and leaders in our school community.

Dayton Elementary is excited to be a Leader in Me school for the 2017 - 1018 school year. The Leader in Me is Franklin Covey's whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. These skills are centered around the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
