Opportunities for collaboration and presenting conceptual understanding of learning in multiple ways are incorporated into the lesson and assessments. Teachers frequently check for understanding to effectively meet the needs of all students. Our 4-6 classrooms are departmentalized: reading and social studies instruction are provided by one teacher in each grade level; inquiry based mathematics and FOSS Science are taught by a second teacher in each grade level.

Students read both quality literature and informational text. The emphasis is on critical thinking skills to make connections to and across texts as well as citing text to justify responses. Writing is embedded in all content areas. Our core mission is to ensure that every child is achieving at or above grade level in each subject area. Our intervention programs are designed to quickly and effectively identify remediation and enrichment opportunities for each and every child through data-baseddecision-making. We believe that with strong, effective instruction children will grow. 

Our core mission is to ensure that every child is achieving at or above grade level in each subject area.  Our programs are designed to quickly and effectively identify remediation and enrichment opportunities through database, decision-making.  Through math and literacy academies, instruction is customized to meet the needs of each child.

To continue building and sustaining our collaborative learning community, teachers meet regularly within and across grade levels and participate in professional development.  Teachers drive their professional development in the true spirit of collaboration by meeting across grade levels and by content area to grow professionally and in turn drive student achievement.
