Gashland Elementary was established in 1959 and serves students K-1. It shares one school community with Clardy Elementary School’s 2-5 center. A single Booster Club governs both school sites and publishes a shared newsletter.
Educating children is a team effort with parents and educators working together to ensure student success. Gashland highly values and appreciates the partnership we have with the parents of our students because we know that without it, we will have limited success with our students.
Gashland was recently recognized as an exemplar school by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education because of their progress implementing and sustaining School Wide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS).
School Mission Statement
The mission of Gashland/Clardy Schools, two schools united as one in the full commitment to excellence in elementary education, is to develop each student’s sense of agency as learner and citizen by providing:
- Engaging, authentic experiences that nurture unique strengths;
- Meaningful partnerships among students, faculty, parents and the community.
