The "High Five" to Excellence

In our efforts to reach for the stars we strive to be:
1.  cooPerative
2.  Respectful
3.  responsIble
4.  kinD
5.  saf

We feel as though these expectations embody Rutherfordton Elementary's desire to provide children with a true education-- one not solely focused on academic improvement but one that also focuses on the social instruction that will help students succeed in life.  By giving students the direction and training that they need in how to show cooperation, respect, responsibility, kindness, and safety in all situations we allow them a chance to soar higher.
