Welcome to our school!

Our school wide focus is Leadership. We will be incorporating "The Leader in Me" philosophy to help our students internalize the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People developed by Dr. Stephen Covey. The seven habits are:

  • Be Proactive
  • Begin With the End in Mind
  • Put First Things First
  • Think Win-Win
  • Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
  • Synergize
  • Sharpen the Saw

The Leader in Me process will help our students develop important 21st century skills such as respect, responsibility, time management, self discipline, self confidence, and communication skills that they need to succeed in school and in their future careers.  You can learn more about what your child is learning by reading the Leader in Me Parent Guide located on our "links" section.

As a part of this Leadership theme, we are focusing on encouraging our students to "Begin With the End in Mind" and work toward becoming College and Career Ready. We are continuing to add to our collection of college and university pennants displayed in our cafeteria. All of these pennants represent our staff and family members' alma maters. We encourage any family member who wants their alma mater to be included to please donate a pennant to our collection.

We look forward to another great year of learning at Natcher Elementary where we begin with the end in mind to educate tomorrow's leaders.
