Principal’s Message

The Philosophy of Mrs. Sheriff

All children are unique.  They come from different cultures, home environments, and circumstances.  Additionally, all children are unique in the way they learn and process information.  I feel it is crucial to recognize the whole child.  I do this by providing a stimulating educational environment where they can grow socially, emotionally, physically, and mentally.  It is my desire to establish the type of atmosphere where students can find success and reach their full potential.  I believe that students should love coming to school.  School is a place where everyone should feel connected and safe.  I want students to be comfortable sharing ideas and taking risks.

 Last but certainly not least, school should be fun.  I have witnessed student learning take place through music, art, and activities.  I celebrate success, and I find it important to recognize the positive. 

During the school year, I have the privilege of spending approximately 1,327 hours with students.  During these hours, I have the opportunity to make a significant impact on each student I serve.  Every minute matters.

Theme for 2023 – 2024

This year our theme is “Be here, Be you, Belong”. As faculty, staff, and students we will strive to reach our highest potential. We will do this by learning and growing each day and always giving our best effort. Fillmore Elementary School implements positive behavioral supports to assist students with behavior and academic learning.  We want our school to be a safe, fun, and friendly place to be. The following behaviors are expected of all students and adults in the classroom as well as the non-classroom settings.  Our mascot, Chip R. Munk, helps us to remember and follow the expectations.

Behavior Expectations:

C – Choose Safety

H – Help Others

I – I’m a Learner

P – Practice Respect
