Hatherly's Mission Statement

We, at Hatherly Elementary School, believe that all children can learn.  We  will work with our community to create a positive environment in which all  children will maximize their potential.  We will facilitate the development  of our children so that they will become lifelong learners and responsible, contributing citizens within our global community.

Need for a Collaborative Culture

Creating a collaborative culture is the single most important factor for successful school improvement initiatives and the first order of business for those seeking to enhance the effectiveness of their schools.
