Elementary Academic Program

Grades 1-4

All the Marinette elementary schools collaborate to provide a consistent elementary experience for area students.

Current Curriculum; Individualized Instruction

Engaging and rigorous instruction develops critical thinkers and problem solvers. As we build a strong foundation of numeracy skills, students also engage in meaningful mathematics conversations to deepen conceptual understanding, strengthen procedural fluency, enhance their reasoning skills, and justify their strategies. We build the foundation so that all students can achieve a high level of mathematics proficiency.

Reading and Writing
Readers Workshop and Writers Workshop are two methods of instruction that make learning relevant and mastering new skills - fun! Both methods of instruction involve the teacher providing direct instruction; children growing through individual conferences and feedback; and each child making progress toward increasingly higher skills. We know not everyone learns at the same pace. Therefore, reading and math intervention services are provided to students needing extra support.

Supporting each child with a well-rounded educational program
All students have a one hour daily rotation for art, music, physical education and library.

Strive Time during the school day allows for all students to get individualized support to advance their learning. Teachers add physical movement, positive behavior recognition, and social-emotional skills to each day to help children learn and grow!

Breakfast is available daily starting at 7:30 a.m. and complete lunch service is available.

Activities through-out the year encourage families to partner with the schools to help all students experience success. Parent-teacher organizations help families get involved and contribute to the school’s success.
