Cypress Elementary School  Vision Statement:

The vision of Cypress Elementary School District 64 is to develop a lifelong love of learning.  Our knowledgeable, dedicated, and passionate staff strives to increase achievement while recognizing the diverse needs of each student.  Together we will promote a safe and nurturing learning environment, which fosters respectful, responsible, productive, and honest citizens in a caring atmosphere.  Students are provided with the opportunity to reach their full potential through the use of challenging, rigorous, and innovative curriculum to meet high expectations of personal growth. 
It is the responsibility of the school, home, and community to work cooperatively to help all students develop understanding and respect for themselves, as well as others, in their daily lives. Families are their children’s primary teachers and are encouraged to be actively involved in education.  When we work together, student achievement increases and the community strengthens.
