MOE Vision Statement


In the 21stCentury students will be introduced to new ways of living, thinking and working. This requires a shift in the methodologies we use at school to develop the 21st Century mindset.  The school’s responsibility is to foster the growth of each student in a safe and secure learning environment so they are prepared to prosper in the Information Age. For these reasons, we at Mt. Orab Elementary have developed a three-part Vision.

First and foremost, each student who passes through our doors must learn to read, using any strategy that works for them. This is paramount for competing in the Information Age. We will dedicate time and resources to manifest individualized instruction, using research based reading strategies and  assessments to systematically track the growth and development of our young readers. Classroom interventions will be introduced for those students who are reading below grade level to boost their performance. For those students who are more than two grade levels behind, more intense interventions, that may include peer mentoring, will be introduced through the IAT and MTSS Processes.

Our staff is trained to work with each other wthin their grade level and teachers from other grade levels to focus on curriculum, instruction and assessment of the students who attend our school. By creating a team approach to doing business, we will focus on individualizing the educational endeavors of our students and using data to help us make instructional decisions that move each student forward.

Finally, we continually strive to update the technology in our building. In our ever changing society, efficient and effective technology will enable our students to access information at a more rapid pace and build their capacity to compete with peers and contemporaries in the future workforce.

Family Literacy

Families everywhere take part in literacy and communication activities that help children understand the world around them. As families get ready for school, prepare for work, eat meals together, shop, do inside and outside chores, and play together, children are exposed to a variety of ways to communicate. They learn through their own talking and listening and through the talking and listening of their caregivers.

Family literacy refers to all the activities that families take part in that develop children’s communication skills such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. This literacy development begins at birth and is a building block for how children learn to use language. There are many natural opportunities throughout the week to help support your child’s developing literacy. Listed below are some common activities to enjoy at home with your child that will promote family literacy.

  • Create a shopping list together
  • Read labels at the grocery store
  • Point out familiar and unfamiliar road signs
  • Identify restaurant logos
  • Draw pictures and tell stories about them
  • Write stories together
  • Read together
  • Read in front of your children (newspaper, magazine, etc.)
  • Read the cereal box during breakfast
  • Play a new game (read and figure out the instructions together)
  • Talk about the day

Once you get started, you will see just how many things you can do as a family that promotes reading, writing, speaking, and listening!
