K-6 School Focus for 2014-2015

  • College Readiness:  Every student receives the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares him or her for college if he or she chooses to attend.
  • Writing Across the Curriculum:  We realize the importance of writing on a daily basis.  The more students write the better they are as critical thinkers.  Writing is an essential skill they will need as they enter adulthood.  Special note:  Check out the writing wall in every teacher's classroom.
  • Data Notebooks:  Students take ownership of their learning in kindergarten through 6th grade.  They set goals and track their progress over time.
  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math): There has been a noticeable change in jobs requiring people to have experience and skills in the area of math, science, technology and engineering.  Our students need to be prepared globally for jobs which haven't even been created in order to live successful and meaningful lives in the 21st century.
