Hello Freedom Families!

My name is Laurie Fischer, and I am honored to say I get to be a part of a great

staff that not only put students first, but value the opportunity that they get to

have partnering with such a fantastic community of supportive families.

Enter to Learn, Leave to Achieve is the school mission. This is what encompasses

our purpose every day. This is only possible with the partnership with our

families and community to support our students’ development. Our approach is

founded in the fundamental philosophy that all students are unique and have

distinct needs that must be met for them to be successful.

Each year we continue to focus on community, enhancing learning experiences

for all, and continuing our traditions. Our staff is committed to providing a

positive learning experience for all students.

Work hard, take chances, and be kind are three basic principles that should be

practiced daily. If we all do this, there is nothing more that is needed. These are

the driving force behind a school climate and culture that puts people first and

allows all our stakeholders to feel a part of Freedom and to have a voice that truly

makes a difference!

As Freedom Hawks, we are in this together. Collectively supporting all students,

collaborating to ensure at the center of our community is a school we are proud

of, and one that we know far exceeds the status quo, both in terms of what we do

for children, but also for each other.

On behalf of the staff here at Freedom, we look forward to working together. I

can not wait to work with you!

Take care,

Laurie Fischer
