Academy of Arts at Bella Vista

The mission of La Casita Elementary, in partnership with family, church, and community, is to ensure that all children develop language, academic, and independent learning skills in order to enhance mental physical, and spiritual well-being, through technology integration, dual-language instruction, and an enriched curriculum, in a multicultural environment, taught by a caring, dedicated team in a safe and welcoming school.

  • Each student will meet or exceed state standards and benchmarks in English
    and/or Spanish.
  • Each student will participate in a technology rich environment.
  • Each student will demonstrate literacy skills in English and/or Spanish.
  • Each student will demonstrate the character traits of respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship.

Beliefs are a statement of an organization’s fundamental convictions, its values and its character.  The Planning Team has determined the following to be the fundamental beliefs of the Clovis Municipal School district:

  • Absolutes exist.
  • Each individual is responsible for his or her own actions.
  • Diverse cultural heritage enriches and strengthens our community.
  • Every person is unique and has worth.
  • Morals and ethics are essential for an orderly and successful society.
  • Success in any aspect of life depends upon preparation, commitment, and self-discipline.
  • All people have unrealized potential that can be developed.
  • Continuous learning is necessary to improve the individual and society.
  • Spiritual well-being is essential for a healthy individual and a healthy community.
  • The physical and mental health of each individual is essential to one’s development.
  • A safe and secure environment is important to an individual’s well-being.
  • Challenging expectations motivate people to high levels of performance.
  • Education is the responsibility of the entire community.

  • We will implement effective and research-based instructional practices that help all students achieve the mission and objectives of La Casita. 
  • We will develop and increase parental and community involvement to help all students achieve the mission and objectives of La Casita. 
  • We will implement teaching strategies that promote self-discipline and positive students behavior. 
  • We will ensure a positive atmosphere exists for our parents, students, staff and community.

  • Nothing will take precedence over the district’s core academic program.
  • No new program or service will be instituted unless it is consistent with the Strategic Plan, benefits clearly exceed costs, and provisions are made for staff development and program evaluation.
  • No existing program or service will be retained unless it continues to make an optimum contribution to the mission and benefits continue to justify costs.
  • We will engage in site-based planning to actively involve students, staff, families, and community members in achieving our strategic objectives.
  • We will establish a climate in our schools which fosters creativity and responsible risk-taking to encourage staff to try innovations which will help achieve our mission and objectives.
  • We will not tolerate behaviors that demean or endanger any individual.
