Our Mission Statement

Eugene Field Elementary: Developing Lifelong Learners, empowered to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s world

The IBO Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate Organization aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

International Baccalaureate describes INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS and LIFELONG LEARNERS as those students who show the attributes of the LEARNER PROFILE.

These students have become…

…Inquirers, Principled,

Knowledgeable, Caring,

Risk-takers, Reflective,

Balanced, Thinkers,

Open-Minded,

and Knowledgeable!

what does field know about how students best learn
What does FIELD know about how STUDENTS best LEARN?

STUDENTS LEARN BEST THROUGH INQUIRY.

Students learn as they work to make sense of the world around them. Therefore, they should be taught to INQUIRE, or “be curious, ask questions, explore, and interact with the environment”.

what do we want field students to learn
What do we want FIELD STUDENTS to LEARN?

Learning at Field follows the Littleton Public Schools Curriculum and identified Learner Outcomes.

In the Primary Years Program, Field deepens the scope of this curriculum through a comprehensive Program of Inquiry.

slide11
The Program of Inquiry organizes student learning into SIX ORGANIZING THEMES which:
  • “have global significance
  • offer students the opportunity to explore the commonalities of human experience
  • are supported by knowledge, concepts and skills from traditional subject areas, but utilizes them in ways that transcend the confines of these subjects.”
slide13
Each grade level can provide a DETAILED DESCRIPTION of their PROGRAM OF INQUIRY and explain how the LEARNER OUTCOMES from the Littleton Public Schools Curriculum are interwoven.

There is also a display detailing the PROGRAM OF INQUIRY for all grade levels in the front hallway.

what does field want students to be able to do
What does FIELD want STUDENTS to be able to DO?

We believe students need to demonstrate “skills relevant to specific subject areas, as well as skills that transcend the subject areas”. These skills are known as TRANSDISCIPLINARY SKILLS,

and include:

Social Skills, Communication Skills, Thinking Skills, Research Skills and Self-Management Skills.

what does field want students to feel value and demonstrate
What does FIELD want STUDENTS to FEEL, VALUE and DEMONSTRATE?

We want students to “focus on the development of personal attitudes towards people, towards the environment and towards learning, attitudes that contribute to the well-being of the individual and the group.” These attitudes are known as the PYP ATTITUDES, and include…

slide16
Appreciation, Commitment, Confidence, Cooperation, Creativity, Curiosity, Empathy, Enthusiasm, Independence, Integrity, Respect and Tolerance.
how do we want students at field to act
How do we want STUDENTS at FIELD to ACT?

We believe that education must involve “thoughtful and appropriate action.” We believe that “successful learning will lead to responsible action, initiated by the student as a result of the learning process,… will extend the student’s learning and/or have a wider social impact.”

This action component is known as the ACTION CYCLE.
