CARE Elementary is not simply composed of staff and students, but is a FAMILY that is working together to reach common goals. Collectively, we strive toward the greater good of every individual here. Not only is CARE about ‘Reaching Excellence’ it’s also about reaching hands out and lifting others so no one is left behind.

I love working at Care Elementary. It’s been great to work with some of best teachers, teacher’s aides, and the best principal  I have ever seen. I enjoy watching the students improve in their behavior, academics, and sports everyday.

CARE continues to inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning so that I can give our students the best possible education!

Ms. Pennyamon

I love that we use a lot of technology to stimulate and foster students’ interests in learning.

My favorite thing about working at CARE is the time I spend in the classroom, where I witness so much growth in each child.
