Welcome to Mendota Elementary School! Mendota Elementary School is an excellent neighborhood school full of curious learners, dedicated teachers and staff members. In addition, we have very supportive and highly engaged parents helping with academic programs and fundraising.
Here are some highlights about our school:
Cougar Time- Four times a year we complete activities around our all school theme and we have children in K-4 groupings.
After School Classes - The Mendota PTA organizes enrichment classes for after school. Students pick from classes in art, sciences, math, music, and physical education.
Strong Curriculum - our writing curriculum was updated last year and we continue to use Scott Foresman reading supplemented with guided reading. Our math scores are solid with our Everyday Math Curriculum.
C.A.R.E.S and Kindness - Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, Self-control and Kindness are the 6 areas stressed to create a community of learners.
We follow many of the Responsive Classroom practices.
