Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!
Dear Fir Grove Families,
Hello and welcome to Fir Grove Elementary School! We are excited to have you join our community of learners. At Fir Grove Elementary we are committed to providing high-level instruction for our students. Our instructional focus is to provide a rigorous and systematic academic instructional program that is aligned with the Common Core State Standards. We strive to develop critical thinkers who achieve high levels. Our ultimate goal is to provide all students with the skills to achieve post high school success.
In addition, our school utilizes PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports). We expect each student to Be a Learner, Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Safe. PBIS practices are rooted in explicitly teaching behavior expectations in all settings across the school and reinforcing student behaviors through a variety of classroom and school-wide methods.
The staff at Fir Grove believes that teaching children is a team effort. You are your child’s first teacher and we have much to learn from your experiences and knowledge in order for your child to be successful in school. You and your child are important members of our team. You are welcome to attend our monthly assemblies that focus on life skills and the celebration of learning. We hope that you will find community with our supportive and dedicated parent group that meets monthly. We welcome volunteers and look forward to working with you.
Our community is always learning and growing. If you have any ideas, thoughts, or concerns you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them.
I look forward to meeting with your children and family during your time at school. Let’s have an amazing school year! I’m proud to be a “Furry Grover”!
