The Pearson Community educates students to be problem solvers who innovate, collaborate, and communicate.
Think You Can, Work Hard, and Get Smarter!
At Pearson Elementary School, we take immense pride in our school mascot, the lion. The lion is a representation of our core values, which are encapsulated in the acronym P.R.I.D.E - Positive, Respectful, Integrity, Dependable, Engaged.
We believe that having a strong set of values is essential to building a community that is inclusive, supportive, and conducive to learning. The lion, with its courage, strength, and dignity, embodies the qualities that we want our students to cultivate in themselves.
Being Positive means having a can-do attitude, seeing the good in others, and embracing challenges as opportunities to learn and grow. We encourage our students to adopt a growth mindset and approach every situation with enthusiasm and optimism.
Being Respectful means treating others the way you want to be treated, showing empathy, and valuing diversity. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels safe, heard, and respected.
Being guided by Integrity means doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. We believe in being honest, responsible, and accountable for our actions and decisions.
Being Dependable means being reliable, trustworthy, and committed. We encourage our students to develop a strong work ethic, take ownership of their learning, and honor their commitments.
Being Engaged means being active, curious, and enthusiastic about learning. We believe in creating an environment that stimulates creativity, critical thinking, and a love for learning.
The lion is not just a mascot; it represents our core values and what we stand for as a community. We believe that by instilling these values in our students, we are preparing them to be responsible, ethical, and successful individuals who will make a positive impact in the world.
