Ansbach Elementary School
The Home of the Cougar Cubs!

     Cougar Cub PRIDE, starts inside!

At Ansbach ES, your student(s) and you will hear the word PRIDE on a daily basis and it is being used in multiple contexts. First and foremost, PRIDE defines 21st century qualities we want our students to develop and internalize.  We want our students to have positive learning experiences and enjoy the educational process.  We desire our students to be responsible citizens and take ownership in their education. We need our students to be independent thinkers and problem solvers in our future work force. We seek to instill in our students the determination to keep trying, especially when the work is difficult and they struggle.  We will empower our students to make decisions and become leaders.
Second, a group or family of cougars is called a PRIDE. We miss our departing PRIDE members and warmly welcome new families and students into our Cougar Cub PRIDE.
