School Notes:

Mission Statement: Hinkletown Mennonite School provides a quality education within the context of an Anabaptist* interpretation of the Christian faith for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Vision Statement As a supportive school community, we: * Emphasize experiencing God's presence * Nurture the spiritual, intellectual, social and physical development of all learners * Believe each person is both a learner and a teacher * Provide opportunities for individuals to discover and develop their interests and gifts * Encourage students to be reflective, caring, and responsible servants for Christ in the global community *Anabaptist -the term is most commonly used to refer to the Anabaptists of 16th century Europe. Today the descendants of the 16th century European movements (particularly the Amish, Hutterites, Mennonites, Church of the Brethren, Brethren in Christ, and other respective German Baptist variants) are the most common bodies referred to as Anabaptist.
