Neighborhood Schools

Beginning in year 2018-2019, only students transitioning to a secondary grade level (Intermediate or High School) and have a sibling who is attending a building that is outside of the attendance area could choose to attend that same school with their sibling. New resident students at the elementary level will attend their neighborhood school. Click here for Implementation Plan for Neighborhood Schools. 

A typical 4K day for your child may include:

  • Benefit from whole group and small group learning experiences.

  • Explore literacy, math, writing, technology and creative play.  (Handwriting Without Tears)

    • Literacy: letter naming, formation of letters and sounds. Rhyming, identifying beginning sounds  and expanding  vocabulary are important components of our day.

    • Math: number writing and recognition, counting, patterning and sorting. Students also work with math vocabulary and problem solving.

    • Read alouds are included in math and literacy learning; “carpet time” offers new learning.

    • Skills based instruction: scissors, glue, pencil, markers/crayons.

  • Utilize an iPad in a 1:1 setting. (Dreambox and Lexia)

  • Music, movement, creative play and arts are incorporated daily.

  • Students enjoy play based learning in the classroom as well as outside recess daily (weather permitting)

  • Rest time.
