At Birch, we recognize that each student brings special talents on which we capitalize, as well as areas of need, which we nurture. In doing so, we provide a learning environment that affords each child the opportunity to reach their "personal best" and develop lifelong skills that will assist them in decision making and problem solving as they continue on their life's journey.

Student Achievement:

Principals Message:
Tanya Santee​Welcome to Birch Elementary!

I am thrilled and honored to be part of this fantastic, dedicated community of learners. Birch is a neighborhood school offering a wide scope of learning opportunities and a variety of instructional strategies to meet the learning styles of its individual students. Our students actively participate in hands-on projects, inquiry based learning, real life math application, and integrated thematic instruction. We offer special services available for students with disabilities and for those who are talented and gifted. We truly strive to meet the needs of all of our students. 

The essence of Birch, however, lies in the true sense of community which is embedded in every aspect of the school. Birch is truly a neighborhood school, and the vast majority of our students come from the immediate area. You will find, as I have, that the community is warm and welcoming, and a great place to call home. 

I look forward to partnering with you as we foster learning environments that meet the needs of all of our students. 

Sincerely, 
Tanya Santee

Mission statement:
Birch is a neighborhood school with strong community support and experienced staff that holds high expectations for their students. At Birch, we recognize that each student brings special talents on which we capitalize, as well as areas of need, which we nurture. In doing so, we provide a learning environment that affords each child the opportunity to reach their "personal best" and develop lifelong skills that will assist them in decision making and problem solving as they continue on their life's journey.

At Birch, in partnership with students, parents, staff and community, we commit to developing each child as an inspired life long learner who demonstrates:
  • A strong foundation of academic skills,
  • Respect for self, others and the environment,
  • Ethical and social responsibility.
We will do this by fostering and celebrating student uniqueness in a safe, nurturing environment.
The behavior program at Birch has two major elements: reinforcement for positive behavior and consequences for inappropriate behavior. Within each element, consistency is the key to success.
 
Children who are recognized as good citizens grow in self-esteem and develop positive ways to interact with others. Teachers will develop a positive climate in the classroom that reinforces good behavior.
