The Shady Brook Vision and Mission Statement

Knowledge Informs and Determines Success for Students

The Mission of Shady Brook Elementary is to provide a safe environment to instill positive character traits and educate all students for success today and tomorrow.

Shady Brook Strategic Goal

100% of students at SBE will meet or exceed passing standards for reading, math, science and writing based on STAAR assessments, Reading 3D, report cards, CBAs/DBAs.

Upcoming goals!

Share your upcoming goals for R3D, CBAs, DBAs with us! As a campus let's work together to support each other and our students with our goals.

Simply email Shannon the goal for the upcoming assessment that you would like to share. The goal will then be shared in this area and then we will all help to encourage the students to achieve the goals that have been set!

After the end of the 1st six weeks of school, it's time to revisit/reteach your classroom and campus expectations. For examples, on the 1st six weeks survey the hallways were mentioned. This is a great time to revisit the expectation of hallway behavior. In addition, look at your instructional time. Is there an expectation that needs to be reviewed with the students
