Big Lake Elementary has served the children of this community for
over 100 years. Our goal is for each student to receive a high-quality
education, providing them a great foundation for any future opportunity they
dream of. This goal fits with our District Mission Statement that, "Every
student graduates with the knowledge and skills for future learning and
success." To prepare our students for a bright future, we must provide
appropriate challenge, developing critical thinkers. We must help students
build strong skills and knowledge in math and science, reading and writing,
history, technology, art and physical education, while offering ample academic
and emotional support. A quality and caring staff set the tone for a
environment with high expectations for all students.
Big Lake Elementary is also about parent and community involvement. Through the
support of our volunteers and families, students participate in outdoor science
education at Mountain School and Camp Orkila. The arts through Missoula
Childrens Theater, Artist-in-Residence, Poet-in-Residence and a wide range of
class field trips. District music programs are available for orchestra and

opportunities our staff and community help provide for students.
