    My Classroom Mission

    It is the mission statement of Kirby's Class to learn the skill of academically constructing essays about literature and informational texts by learning to read conscientiously and in a literary manner. This mission will be achieved by all learners, teachers and students alike. This education will bring value to students, the school, and the community by building greater citizenship in adult life.
