Welcome to Steere Farm Elementary School! Here at Steere Farm we support our students not only in their academic journey, but we also support them in being respectful, responsible, and ready to learn each day. We ask students to be kind and to think about the feelings of others. We ask them to think about themselves and to think about what they need as they learn, and we ask them to work hard each day in school and to never give up - nothing is ever too hard! Our teachers are committed to providing our students with daily learning experiences that are both rigorous and meaningful. They help students to build upon their prior knowledge, and they aim to extend the learning of their students as they become proficient in their academic areas. Our school is a fun place to be every day! We work hard, but we play hard too! We are looking forward to another great school year and we look forward to working with our wonderful families and community members!
Safety is a Top Priority! Steere Farm will continue to stay vigilant with regards to school safety each and every day. We will continue our fire and lockdown drills, we will continue to check identification of all who enter our school, and doors will continue to be closed and locked at all times.
The Importance of Attendance School attendance is super important to the academic achievement of our students. The school year is 180 days, and if a student is absent 18 days, he or she has missed 10% of the school year! That's a lot of time! That's 18 days of missed instruction, hands-on experience, and important discussion about learning. Absences should be used for illnesses, which are inevitable. While family vacations are great fun, missing school immediately puts students behind. Please plan vacations for times when school is not in session - this will help our kiddos to stay on track!
What do we mean by Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn? These are our school rules. We are a Positive Behaviors and Instructional Supports (PBIS) school, and we work to highlight positive behaviors in order to change negative behaviors. Our students earn SuperStar tickets throughout the various areas of the school, and they can use those tickets to "purchase" small items or activities each week. There is a home matrix as well, so that our families can use these same structures in the home.
