About Greenwood Elementary School
Greenwood School proudly boasts a student body of over 200 children who come from culturally rich family backgrounds. Our goal is to respect individual differences and build new partnerships while strengthening the home-school-community relationship. As a school community, we understand that such partnerships are essential to the effective teaching and learning of our students.
Our English Language Arts program is designed to augment students’ mastery of the five core areas of language arts literacy: phonemic awareness, phonological awareness, comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. This mastery is achieved through small guided reading groups providing differentiated instruction to challenge students at various levels of engagement. Instructional time for language arts literacy includes 90 minutes of reading and writing.
In regard to mathematics, Greenwood continues to utilize Math Expressions- a program that emphasizes interdisciplinary learning and differentiated instruction. Math instruction takes place 80 minutes a day.
In addition to formal instruction, Greenwood staff host a variety of programs to foster strong home-school-community relationships that support student learning. These programs include, but are not limited to, a series of Family Literacy, Family ELA and Math Workshops. These evening events engaged parents and children in the skills of contextual analysis and problem solving. Furthermore, they provided forums wherein parents learned how to productively discuss and explore instructional activities with children.
Through partnerships with our parents, students, and staff, we look forward to ensure that our school community is given the foundation for career readiness. We value and embrace diversity.
