Mission Statement
Giffen Memorial Elementary School is a Success for All School! It is an exciting learning place where young people develop their natural gifts and abilities as they gain confidence in their potential. Students grow to become well-adjusted, independent thinkers as they explore their intelligence. They also realize the satisfaction of productive teamwork as they collaborate with others from a variety of racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.


Stimulating activity integrates themes and basic content, resulting in higher scholastic achievement for all. Children are empowered to become strong, responsible citizens through the dedicated efforts of competent staff, involved parents, and supportive community organizations.


Family Resource and Support Center
The Family Resource and Support Center is designed to use school-community partnerships in its mission to support, strengthen, and stabilize families in order to help children succeed in school and foster healthy development at home and in the community.


The center's mission will be accomplished through collaborative efforts of parents, community outreach services, faith-based organizations, and corporate sponsorships.
