Christa McAuliffe Elementary opened in August, 2006, and is built for 600 students grades K-5. We have added four portable classrooms and are fully integrated with all of our technology and communication. The facility is secure all day, with the office door being the only point of entry for the public. First class security cameras operate 24/7 in our halls and outside the structures. Clearance for the public and parents is done through a KeepNTrack kiosk at the front desk, and name badges for admittance are printed there. All employees and parent volunteers are fully background checked. The neighboring Jim Jeffers Park next door is a wonderful resource that we use for P.E. classes and Friday afternoon special recess.
The school uses a combination of the Core Knowledge Curriculum and local school district curriculum in order to give students the best education. For reading, we use the McGraw-Hill “Treasures” basal series, along with Spalding Phonics, Accelerated Reader, and Guided Reading strategies. The math curriculum is “Voyages”, which is a challenging curriculum that requires students to sharpen their thinking skills. Each grade level holds Core Knowledge culminating events after units of study such as: 1st grade guest “Mummy”; Greek Festival at 2nd grade; 3rd grade Roman “battle”; and 5th grade Renaissance Faire.
It is a requirement that each family spend 30 hours of parent involvement time at our school during the year. Research clearly shows that when parents value and support education, the children achieve at a higher rate. We have a multitude of opportunities to become involved, as this school is a family-oriented school with fun activities at school throughout the year.
The school has the latest in technology, including 5 networked computers in each classroom; a Smartboard (77” interactive white board computer) in each class along with a digital docucam that projects anything placed under it onto the Smartboard); a full mobile laptop lab with 23 Dell netbooks and SMART Response wireless remotes that students “click” when answering a question giving the teacher immediate feedback that can be graphed on the Smartboards. Christa McAuliffe Elementary posses a new state of the art, "live" production TV studio. Older students produce high quality morning news broadcasts to the entire campus aired on the school's internal TV channel. The studio consists of professional studio cameras, lighting, chroma-key wall and a news desk. A separate room houses master control with audio and video mixer equipment, DVD decks and Newtek Tri-Caster computer equipment.
