Data Wall

As an educational team that works with your children throughout the year, we continue to assess how children are progressing at various checkpoints (September, January and May).   One measure that we use is the DIBELS assessment.   The Data Wall below hangs in our lobby and as children improve throughout the year you can see the stars (students) moving.  Each star on this chart represents 10 students.   If you see a star with 2 points to the star, that represents 4 children.    If you see a star with only a half of a point on the star, that represents 1 student.

We are proud of the progress our students make throughout the year.   This is combined effort of great teachers, committed children and supportive families.   Thank you!

Race for Education

Every teacher, student and parent in our school would like to thank everyone for their generous donations to our Race for Education Fundraiser.   It is only through your generosity that we can raise the money to pay for field trips and incredible assemblies to enhance learning at our school.    To date, we have raised a little over $7,000.00 and appreciate every dime.    We are very fortunate to live and work with such great families.

6th grade celebration

This week we were able to celebrate with our graduating 6th graders in a very special way.    Mrs. Wise was able to replicate an amazing race tied to academic content for all of our 6th graders.   It was a fun way to spend the day and celebrate this milestone for all of our kids.   Take a look at some of the pictures below.   Thank you to the many parents who joined and helped with this incredible event.

Farewell to familiar friends and welcome to new friends!

At the close of the 2013-2014 school year we will say goodbye to many friends that will be deeply missed.

Mrs. Peart will be teaching 2nd grade at LeTort Elementary School.   To fill this void, Mrs. Hoin will be transferring from 4th grade to 2nd grade to couple with Mrs. Kerry Bushong for a 2nd grade duo.

Mrs. Miller (Urban) will be teaching 1st grade at Conestoga next year.   To fill this void, Ms. Mary Fellin will be sliding in her spot to teach fourth grade with Mrs. Aucott.

Mr. Wayne Martin, who many of you may remember, is rejoining the Martic team to teach 5th grade for the 2014-2015 school year.

Mrs. Young is retiring after providing wonderful opportunities for our children in the area of health and physical education.   Interesting point… Mr. Young will be joining us from the middle school as our physical education teacher.   That should make it easy for the children.

Mrs. Stephan (Discover teacher), Mrs. Pierce, Mrs. Cantrell and Mr. Fritz will all be teaching in different buildings next year.   Mr. Steve Sellers will be joining us as our teacher of the gifted.    Mrs. Steffy will be our only art teacher for the 2014-2015 school year.
