Our Core Values
Caring for ourselves, caring for each other, and caring for our school and community.
Our Five Pillars
- Do No Harm
- Choice Words
- It’s never too late to learn
- Best School in the Universe
We aim to provide a place of magic for our students, staff, and community - a place that honors each individual from a place of welcome, mutual respect, wellness, compassion, and a growth mindset.
Our goal, as Cascade View staff, is to work collaboratively for the benefit of each student by honestly evaluating our instructional practices to meet individual need.
Cascade View strives toward constant, collaborative, high quality instructional improvement intended to meet the individual needs of each student. Students in kindergarten through 6th grade benefit from a challenging curriculum which focuses first on building basic skills in reading, math, and writing then shifts to the application of these skills to support higher-level thinking. Social studies, science, health, physical education, and the arts are highly valued content areas. Programs unique to Cascade View include special education classes for students who are deaf or hearing impaired; restorative practices of student citizenship promoting strong and healthy relationships in community; and for students who benefit from center-based instruction. All classes at Cascade View share an appreciation for differences in learners and value the contribution that each brings to the learning community. Our core values are Caring for Ourselves, Caring for Each Other, and Caring for our School and Community.
Parents and community members are always welcome at school. Those wishing to volunteer at the school may contact a teacher directly or volunteer through the school office. Cascade View has a very supportive group of parents. This is reflected in their high visibility as volunteers and attendance at conferences, concerts, and at other school functions. Cascade View parents and teachers have also formed a chapter of the national Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), which supports field trips and assemblies for students, helps teachers with classroom expenses, as well as buying equipment for the playground and the teachers.
