Small School + Big Hearts = Great Expectations!
By Christy Brown, PrincipalWe are Buzzing at Sand Hill Elementary School! Our “HORNETS” are eager and excited about learning as we focus on reading, writing and mathematics through problem solving. Sand Hill Elementary School (SHES) has a broad curriculum that enhances learning for all children to prepare them to be life-long learners in an ever-changing society. SHES teachers are committed to providing every child a quality education. In addition to our rigorous curriculum, our teachers strive to meet the needs of all students by using supplemental research-based interventions.SHES seeks new learning opportunities for all students. We search for the most current and up-to-date methods for teaching and assessing students. This has led to schoolwide training and implementation of Thinking Maps, Write From the Beginning, and Standards-based Instruction into our strategies for fostering student’s creative and analytical thinking.SHES incorporates Project Wisdom as a part of its character education program. These inspirational messages set a positive tone for the day for everyone on campus. SHES feels it is extremely important to educate all aspects of the student learner. Project Wisdom provides the opportunity for students to begin their day considering one of citizenship’s big issues, such as honesty or respect.Sand Hill Elementary School…Great Students. Great Staff. Great Expectations!
