We pride ourselves on developing a culeader lture where students are empowered for success! The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.

    The staff at Fuguitt Elementary embrace the following core values and view them as a foundation of the culture within which we operate and a means by which to achieve our vision and mission:
