Lanier Elementary is a collaborative pre-kindergarten through fifth grade learning community that prepares each child to make positive and meaningful contributions to our society, our city and our world. Our mission is to create a safe and comfortable environment where all students will develop cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically to their best individual potential through differentiated instruction and engaging hands-on learning experiences.
Community matters at Lanier Elementary School. We are proud of our rich tradition of academic and personal excellence and strive to put our very best efforts into all that we do. Our students foster community spirit through programs like our Student Council which organizes programs like our Student Council which organizes all-school civic engagement projects, our Safety Patrol which pairs our youngest learners with our oldest learners to ensure safe drop-off and dismissal, and all-school celebrations like our annual Vocabulary Day Parade and Reading Counts awards. Our parents carry that community focus forward by creating opportunities for students and families to stay engaged outside of the school day.
FOCUS ON LITERACY And numeracy
Reading and numeracy are priorities for Lanier students. We build strong reading literacy skills through incentives including Reading Counts and Million Word club. For numeracy, Lanier uses a fact master program to provide students with additional incentives to improve math fact computation rates and skills. We celebrate academic milestones through regular awards assemblies that recognize each student's academic growth and progress throughout the year. Our students get engaged and excited about reading and math and are eager to share their success with peers, teachers and family.
FINE ARTS PROGRAMS
The arts are integrated into student learning experiences at Lanier. You will find art projects across all academic areas from social studies to math to English language arts. Student musicians can study stringed instruments and - with the support of a highly-experienced music teacher - every child at Lanier will have an opportunity to perform in front of his or her peers, parents and families each year. Our students also study music through our partnership with Sistema Tulsa.
