The mission of Paxson Elementary is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for students to grow and thrive.  We facilitate meaningful learning experiences and encourage our students to stretch their thinking by considering a variety of perspectives and possibilities.  In addition, our students stretch their abilities by challenging themselves physically, socially, and academically.  As a community of life-long learners and citizens of the globe, we all stretch.
