The mission of Axton Elementary School is to provide a high quality education in a creative and positive environment integrating learning experiences that emphasize real world applications.
We recognize the most important task before us, as a school community, is provision for the care and development of our children. We understand that all children can achieve fundamental skills in the areas of English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science in order to prepare for high school graduation and further education and/or employment.
Teachers, staff, administrators, parents, students, and community members share in the responsibility to pursue every means available to help students grow and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
We realize the need to provide appropriate learning experiences for all students considering their special and unique needs and learning styles. We strive to provide the opportunities for every child to express himself or herself through creative endeavors and the use of current technology.
We must provide instruction and a positive learning environment that will result in intellectual, physical, moral, emotional, and social development.
We should foster the formation of a positive and realistic concept of self and appreciation for diversity, thus encouraging ethical standards of behavior and participation in society as a responsible and contributing member.
Our school colors are red and blue. Our school mascot is the Eagle.
