Welcome to Erpenbeck Elementary School, home of the Mustangs, where our school motto is Each Student, Each Teacher, Stampeding Toward Success! The mission of our teachers and staff is to continuously create a learning climate that ensures high levels of academic achievement based on state and national standards, as well as 21st Century goals, while ensuring positive social and emotional growth in our students with a solid system of support.
The state and national standards mentioned in our mission statement above are now the same standards since Kentucky was the first state to adopt the nationally-developed Common Core Standards. Kentucky’s public schools have now assessed its students for the second year using the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) Assessment. The first year’s result indicated that our school had performed at the Proficient level. While this is exciting news, we realize that an assessment score is only one measure of our students’ overall preparedness for the future. Our intentional focus on teaching and learning remains the same. As teachers and staff, we will continue to ensure that each of our students have the opportunity to collaborate, communicate, critically think and be creatively involved with their learning. To be college and career ready, it is our responsibility as a teaching staff and our students’ rights as learners.
The teachers and staff of Erpenbeck Elementary School invite you, as parents, grandparents, and friends, to join us as we communicate and collaborate together to ensure each of our students is stampeding toward success!
