Schavey Road Elementary School offers programming for 1st and 2nd grade students. The staff at Schavey Road Elementary School is committed to working in a partnership with you and your child in order to help them reach their fullest potential. In addition to the traditional academic subjects of math, science, english, reading and social studies, students participate in specials throughout the week including music, physical education, and art.
Title I Early Reading Intervention
Schavey Road Elementary is the fortunate recipient of Federal funding from Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). This funding allows us to provide early reading intervention services, activities and programs to first and second grade students. Each year in recognition of receiving these funds, the entire Schavey Road Elementary staff, parents/guardians and students participating in activities, services, and programs funded by Title I, Part A are asked to sign a compact. The compact is symbolic of our shared responsibility for improving student academic achievement in partnership to help children achieve the State’s and DeWitt Public Schools high standards.
School Improvement Goals
DeWitt Public Schools promotes student learning and achievement by providing leadership, guidance and support that directly impacts teaching and learning, school leadership and continuous school improvement. Each school has developed school improvement goals to support these activities.
Positive Behavior Support
This year at Schavey Road Elementary has implemented a building wide positive behavioral support system. The goal is to use our common set of behavior expectations to help students learn social skills necessary for success. Improving the social behavior of students results in more minutes spent in academic instruction and better attention to tasks.
To help us achieve these goals everyone at Schavey will be learning the FISH! For Schools Philosophy. This philosophy helps build effective relationships, establishes individual accountable and provide an emotionally and physically safe atmosphere of engagement and fun. Students are drawn to it and teachers find their passion for educating children rekindled. We anticipate a lot of excitement and growth as we guide our students in personal and social development. The principles we will learn together are life-long, everyday, living skills for people of all ages. You are an important element in every aspect of your child's education. We hope you will enjoy and value the process with us. As we begin to explore FISH! For Schools, your child might start talking about the four FISH! principles at home. To help you in your conversation, here is a little glossary:
