School Overview

Haviland Elementary School is a Junior Kindergarten through 5th Grade building.  We offer a strong academic program and extra-curricular activities.  The Michigan Department of Education has designated Haviland Elementary as a Michigan Blue Ribbon School which is the most prestigious education award in the state.  The Blue Ribbon distinguishes Haviland Elementary for their excellence in leadership, teaching, curriculum, student achievement, parent involvement, and community support.

Our staff is committed to working collaboratively and uses data to drive our instruction through professional learning communities.  Our teachers are skilled in differentiating instruction to meet the needs of our students.  In addition to whole group lessons, small group instruction, partner work and independent learning, our students participate in classroom discussions where they learn to agree, disagree, and clarify their understanding of others thinking.  Our students also learn how to prove their thinking with evidence and reasoning.

With the sponsorship of the Haviland PTA, our school is a proud partner of the Positivity Project! The Positivity Project (or referred to as P2) is a mindset rooted in positive psychology. This powerful mindset teaches our students that OTHER PEOPLE MATTER. Our students are explicitly taught that they carry with them a repertoire of character traits that make them who they are and that they are an important part of their environment. Through engaging, daily, P2 lessons, we are empowering self-aware, empathetic students.   You can learn more about the Positivity Project by clicking on these two links: Of This, I’m Positive and this document.  

The philosophy of P2 aligns nicely with our Haviland shared mission:

At Haviland, we encourage positive, kind, and respectful relationships in our community.  Our students grow socially, emotionally and value learning so they can be their best selves in a diverse world.

Our school community celebrates our students, teachers, and parents on their efforts to make our school the best place to learn and grow.  We strive for open communication between home and school which creates success for our students.  Everyday we are committed to inspire, educate and empower our students for their future.
