About Shaw Butte Elementary
Welcome to Shaw Butte Elementary, home of the Hawks!
All schools in the Washington Elementary School District are committed to achieving excellence for every child, every day, every opportunity. Shaw Butte is a learning-rich mosaic, a community of many cultures, where we appreciate differences and celebrate diversity, while focusing on achievement. Our staff believes that all children can dream, achieve and deserve equal access to a full education. Critical thinking skills are taught to enable children to resolve conflicts, make decisions, and identify problems.
The love of learning is nurtured as a lifelong process. Shaw Butte's curriculum is fully aligned with State Standards. Shaw Butte provides art, music and PE for all grade levels.
Community participation in our school is encouraged. Mutual respect, trust, citizenship and good communication with the school community is vital. When parents are involved in their children's education, students, teachers and parents benefit.
Our mission is to support all of our students to reach their full learning potential and guide them to become responsible, productive citizens.
