Welcome to Lanier!
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. 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 and safety patrol, 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.
FINE ARTS PROGRAMS
At Lanier, the arts are integrated into student learning experiences. You will find art projects across all academic areas, from social studies to math to English language arts. With the support of a highly-experienced music teacher, every Lanier student has an opportunity to perform in front of their peers, parents and families each year.
FOCUS ON LITERACY And numeracy
Reading and numeracy are priorities for our students. We build strong reading literacy skills through incentives like Reading Counts and Million Word club. For numeracy, we use 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 friends, family, and their teachers.
