COLUMBIA CITY â€” Little Turtle Elementary School teachers and administrators are working every day to fulfill the buildingâ€™s mission statement.
That statement is one the faculty hopes each student embraces, â€śI am here to learn.â€ť
Learning is aided for the students by Quality Circles, which are groups of teachers who work together within specializations. Academic quality groups include such areas as literacy and math.
â€śAll quality circles will support the schoolâ€™s goals,â€ť said Little Turtle Principal Tammy Weimer.
Some of the goals include having 90 percent of students pass the math and the English/language arts portions of the ISTEP+ test.
In that light, Weimer was pleased to share success with those tests.
â€śISTEP+ is consistently above the state average at Little Turtle,â€ť she said.
