Mr. Qual's Message

Last year was a great 1st year for Mora Elementary.  We found that two schools and groups of staff members can unite and be even stronger together. It was so great to see our oldest students helping the younger kids with many things, reading buddies for example.  The younger students taught the older students about plenty, also. Showing good examples, compassion, and many more items to lengthy to list.

Over the past few years, we've seen some tremendous growth in our students’ MCA results for Math, Science, and Reading. The last 3 years we’ve had some of our best results ever on the state MCA tests.   I’m also excited about positive growth in our citizenship and our students' character.

This year we are going to refocus on our OLWEUS bullying program with students and staff. We initially introduced Olweus to our district 6 years ago.  We are also returning to a DARE program with our School Resource Officer, Deputy Strom. Deputy Strom will not just focus on drug abuse resistance; he is also going to focus on character and making good choices throughout life.  

Please don't hesitate to call or email me with any questions you may have regarding our schools or your child's education.  I'm proud of our schools, our staff, and our students. Go MUSTANGS!
