Mission Statement

Luther Elementary School is characterized by a dedicated staff, involved community, and enthusiastic learners. Our mission is to facilitate maximum levels of academic growth and achievement for each student through the implementation of research-based curriculum, while modeling and encouraging positive character traits. Luther School is committed to meeting the needs of every child by providing an academically challenging and supportive environment.

Community & School Profile

Luther Elementary School was established in 1923 in the community of Live Oak, located in northern Sutter County. Luther is one of five schools in the Live Oak Unified School District and serves 650 students in kindergarten through fourth grades for the 2013-2014 school year.

Luther Elementary School has a highly qualified and caring staff dedicated to helping every child succeed academically and socially. Communication with the community and between the home and school is extremely important for student success. Luther School is dedicated to providing maximum opportunities for positive interaction with parents, community members, and staff.

Luther Elementary School Goals

  • All students will annually demonstrate maximum individual academic growth.
  • All students will achieve competencies in reading, writing, and mathematics by the end of the fourth grade.
  • Incorporate additional opportunities for parent involvement.

Common Core Standards

We are committed to sharing the most current and effective information that will help you navigate through these changing times. One of the biggest new initiatives is the fact that California educators have joined a national movement to adopt common standards and assessments for English Language Arts and Mathematics. The standards are designed to reflect the knowledge and skills our students need for success in college and careers. These learning goals help ensure that students meet college and work expectations, are prepared to succeed in a global economy and society, and are provided with rigorous content and application of higher knowledge thinking.

Common standards will also allow for collaboration among states on best practices and professional development. A common set of learning goals help teachers and parents ensure students are challenged and making appropriate progress.

It is vital that parents understand what the standards contain and what they ask of our students. A great way for parents to reference the Common Core Standards is by clicking here: Parent Handbook. This handbook gives parents an introduction to California's Common Core Standards and a summary of what students are expected to learn as they advance from kindergarten through fourth grade.
