    School Vision
    "Learners today, Leaders tomorrow - Truman School builds the foundation of learning"

    School Mission
    Truman Elementary School builds the foundation for learning for all students by developing positive attitudes, skills, and knowledge to become lifelong learners and the future leaders of tomorrow .

    Welcome to Truman Elementary School
    Truman School is committed to providing a quality education for all of our children.  We believe that this can be accomplished with parents, teachers, staff and community members working together to promote the best interests of children.  Parents are important members of our school community and can become actively involved in the school through such activities as classroom volunteers, membership on various committees, and membership in the District Parent Teacher Association.  We welcome your participation and look forward to working with all of our students’ families. 



    As a result of a vendor change in phone services, the district has moved forward with a new main phone number for incoming calls. The new number is (716) 821-5610.
