Our School

 

Erskine’s mission is to develop world class learners and responsible citizens.

Erskine staff is committed to using research based best practices to provide instruction that is engaging and meaningful to students. They believe that every student will feel part of a safe, respectful community where they will be given the tools to do their personal best and achieve their full potential, becoming the best learners they can be. 

Erskine PTA supports our school community by providing students with many unique opportunities.  They provide many extra activities for our students such as Winter Party, monthly Family Fun nights, Spring Field Day and our after school enrichments.  These enrichments have included French, sign language, cooking, writing, drums, gardening, and dance.  Our PTA also supports our Holiday Food Baskets and Christmas Giving Tree, making sure that our Erskine families have food and gifts for the holiday season.

Erskine activities have also included Lego League, Art Club, athletic intramurals, running club, and science nights.

Erskine partnerships have benefitted our students tremendously.  Erskine has an active partnership with Mount Mercy University. This partnership provides our students with some on campus experiences and college students as tutors.  Our 4th grade students travel to Mount Mercy University yearly to participate in college classes designed for them.  3rd grade students travel to MMU to learn about sportsmanship and healthy eating.  Boys and Girls Club and Jane Boyd Community Center provide transportation for our students after school to their centers.  Erskine also has before and after school programming provided by Waypoint Services.

Erskine volunteers are important.  We have many opportunities for families to volunteer at school. These opportunities can include time in the classroom, serving at Donuts for Dads or Muffins for Mom, doing craft projects at the Winter Party, or baking cakes for our Field Day Cake Walk.

Erskine's campus sits on a very large property with plenty of green space for children to play. Many of our community members use our paved walking track, baseball diamond, and playing fields for league sports.
