Dear School Community:
The 2014-2015 school year will be an exciting new year for our community and board members, our parents and families, our staff and most of all, our students. Johnstonville Elementary School is quickly becoming a school of choice. You may be wondering why I have stated this and this is the reason why.
Our school has the most predictive student achievement and assessment system that it ever has had before. Students are assessed using multiple assessments on a regular basis so the public, board members, parents, teachers, and the students themselves know exactly what the students know in Reading, Mathematics, Language Usage, and Science. We are proud of our students and their academic achievement and now we have assessment data to prove it. The data is used to provide interventions and accelerations for each student and groups of students.
This year we continue to implement the Common Core State Standards. You will notice a different curriculum being taught at Johnstonville Elementary School this year. Our school has adopted a nationally recognized reading program called “Success For All.” Students are placed according to their knowledge and skill levels in reading while the curriculum provides for differentiated instruction. At Johnstonville we will implement a new common core integrated mathematics program K-8. In our middle school grades (6-8) the school will provide flexible math groups with each student being placed in a group that is appropriate for his/her learning and knowledge already gained. Let’s not forget our full day Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten. Johnstonville Elementary School also affords our youngest students a quality primary experience throughout the day by providing research-based curricula in reading and mathematics.
Finally, Johnstonville Elementary School has become a safer environment for all students to learn and teachers to teach. The school has updated its school safety plan and procedures, installed a new P.A. system, a camera security system, and relocated the offices and classrooms in order to ensure student safety. Come visit our school, walk the campus, and observe teaching and learning!
