Principal’s Message

Hello Truman Families,
 
 I am looking forward to the new school year! Our goal at Truman is to help all students feel welcome, connected, and supported in reaching their highest potential. At Truman, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage students in learning. The teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and set appropriate goals for student growth and improvement. We believe that by working together all students can be successful.

School Profile

Truman Elementary School serves grades K-5 in Sweetwater County School District #2. Our mission is to challenge each student to reach their full potential and to be well prepared for success in the 21st century.
 
Our staff recognizes that teaching our students social skills as well as academic skills is crucial to their future personal success. As a result, Truman Elementary uses the Positive Behavior Incentive Program (PBIS) as well as the Second Step Social Skills programs to specifically teach our students how to interact with others in a constructive manner and to develop pride in themselves.
 
These two programs help our staff teach students within a positive environment where every child is expected to Be Kind, to Be Respectful, and to Be Responsible. We teach our students specific behavior expectations that show them how to be respectful, kind and responsible in certain areas of the school such as: classroom, lunchroom, bathroom, hallway, playground, and assemblies. We also have a "zero tolerance" policy for bullying and we will continue to implement our anti-bullying program. Please feel free to call me if issues arise. Early parent and student input is so important to helping us maintain a positive and safe climate for Truman students.
