Cardinal Elementary is home to Nebraska's 2018 Teacher of the Year Michelle Helt, a 2018 Friend of Autism award-winning special ed team, Daisy Award-winning school nurse, and is distinguished as a PLC Model School. Our primary mission is student achievement, but we are also purposeful in working to meet the needs of each student as a whole child. We are proactive in fostering positive behaviors, including respect, being a good friend and building future leaders for our community. We utilize the Professional Learning Community (PLC) model in all our work, allowing us to be recognized us a model PLC school by Solution Tree. Our staff collaborates weekly on students' academic and other needs, and when students are not progressing as expected, we quickly intervene through our MTSS model. We have an active PTO that helps build activities for families to get together and enjoy the elementary experience. The Beyond the Bell program offers after school services on-site during the school year.
