Welcome to

The Home of the Tigers!

 "We Can, We Must, We Will Achieve!"

Mission:  Through school based and community program/partnerships, it is our goal that by the time students leave Sixth Ward Elementary they would have exemplified growth in all aspects of their lives.

Vision:  The vision for Sixth Ward Elementary is to adopt programs and encourage professional practices that promote the development of the whole child. Whereby, the academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs of our students are met, in an effort to produce a more well-rounded student and foster life-long success.

The 4-H Club of Sixth Ward Elementary School held its election of officers on Tuesday, September 13, 2016. The process was hard, but it was a learning experience. Candidates running for offices campaigned in front of their peers and 4H sponsors. Club members cast their votes, and ballots were counted. The officers for the 2016-17 session are as follows: President: Leah Steib, Vice President: Jacye Smith, Secretary: Alacia Hall, Reporter: Madison Moll, Recreational Leader: Kenzi Brass, Safety Chairperson: Jayla Johnson, Parliamentarian: Aniya Pillette, and Treasurer: Khylan Vedol. This group is going to make this year the best one yet for Sixth Ward Elementary’s 4H Club!
