Channing's mission is to consider all children as they are and provide them with a safe, happy learning environment. They will be provided with skillful and caring teachers with high expectations who will guide them to their full potential. We will be partners with parents in maximizing the benefits of schooling for all Channing youngsters.

Vision Statement
Channing Memorial Elementary School will provide an education that effectively meets the diverse needs of our students. Success will result from the ownership by all partners in the educational process--students, parents, staff, and community members. Together, we will be dedicated to providing a respectful school climate that has a shared sense of purpose, effective communication, trust, and pride. A commitment to the children's individual academic, social, emotional, and physical needs will be a priority.
