Welcome to Our School):
Peebles Elementary School is committed to
academic excellence & strengthening character through quality education.
SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT INITIATIVES:
We continue being involved in
several initiatives at Peebles Elementary School which will lead us in
the direction of being a school of excellence. We strive to provide a safe and caring environment for the children of
our community. Our involvement in OIP
continues to play a major
role in our continued drive to move to "Excellent
with Distinction" status. The plans outline data tracking of
reading, math, and attendance, analyzing trends in those areas, and planning for
effective programs in delivery of reading and math instruction and classroom
management (discipline). We track reading and math data through Foresight
and AimsWeb Fluency
Probes as well as a host of other data tools including walkthroughs and
attendance. For classroom management our
teachers use two methods, Assertive Discipline and Time To Teach. We
continue to use SWIS (School Wide Information System) to track discipline
and behavior problems so that we can analyze the level of improvement /
impact of the various classroom management programs. If you have questions
about these or any other improvements we are currently involved in, you can
gain further information by clicking on the "School Improvement" link at the
top of this page which leads you to our action plans for the
school year (these will be updated shortly). You may also contact Mrs. Lamb or Mr. Walls at
the school at 937-587-2611.
