The elementary years of school lay the foundation for a life of learning. During these early years, we have the opportunity to observe students grow and achieve many important milestones in their lives. Walking throughout the classrooms and buildings of our school, you will find inquisitive, friendly and happy children learning together while having fun doing it.
Our developmentally designed curriculum is aimed to meet the varying needs of students from diverse backgrounds. The Elementary School uses a balanced literacy approach to teaching reading and writing. Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop are at the core of our literacy program. We dedicate large blocks of time to teaching literacy throughout our school and want our students to live a literate-rich life, while instilling a life-long love of reading and writing.
Our math program is designed to promote problem solving and mathematical reasoning. Emphasis is placed on developing strong number sense in students, while learning multiple strategies to problem solve and explain mathematical thinking and reasoning. Our students visit specialist teachers in art, music, physical education, library, and Spanish. We have a strong learning support program where learning support teachers and our counselor work with students who require academic, social and/or English language support.
Our elementary counselor and counseling program supports students, parents, and staff. We recognize the important role families play in the development of their child's academic and social growth. I welcome your involvement in our community and look forward to you becoming an active participant in your child's school life.
