About North Gresham Elementary

  • Mission:

    At North Gresham Elementary School, our staff, students, and parents work together to
    provide a positive learning experience for all students. Our staff is dedicated to providing
    all students with an education that will prepare them for continuing success in school.
    We recognize that children come to us from varied backgrounds, environments and with
    differing abilities. We expect individual excellence from each child while understanding
    that students learn in different ways and at different speeds.

    We believe that parents play an essential role in the success and happiness of their child
    at school. We encourage you to actively participate in your child’s education by showing
    an interest in what they are learning, asking questions about their work, and participating
    in school activities. We value input and involvement from families.

    Regular communication between parents, teachers, and students is a key to student success.
    We are excited for another great year at North Gresham. We strive to provide a safe,
    positive, and rigorous learning environment for all students. We welcome you into our
    school and classrooms!
