Welcome to Our Family!

Caldwell Elementary staff are committed to giving every child on a campus a powerful day of learning. We love to create engaging experiences for our students and you will regularly see our staff dressed in costumes, playing games, singing and snapping pictures with our students!

We believe in telling our story about the magical and powerful things happening on campus during the day. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the positive things we are doing with our school family.

YOU are a part of our story! Share your positive stories and help others see how Caldwell is positively impacting children and our community!

Our staff and students are each a member of a ‘house’. Each house brings a different strength to create ONE SCHOOL. During the year, each house can earn points for their house and we recognize a house leader at the end of each 9 weeks.

The Forte House means STRONG. Their color is black and their symbol is a fort.

The El Mejor House means THE BEST. Their color is grey and their symbol is two thumbs up crossed.

The Philomathes House means LOVE OF LEARNING. Their color is blue and their symbol is a light with a heart in it.

The Sans Peur House means FEARLESS. Their color is red and their symbol is fire.

The Ubuntu House means ‘I AM BECAUSE WE ARE’ (UNITY). Their color is green and their symbol is a circle with hands reaching inward.

Our Vision

At Caldwell Elementary, we will foster a rigorous standards-based learning environment that engages and develops learners through creative thinking and problem-solving strategies while empowering them to become independent well-rounded learners and leaders.
