Beyond the Core
Gerrardstown Elementary has a variety of curricular enriching activities for our students that extend beyond Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Our Physical Education teacher keeps students moving year-round and knows that “Active Kids are Thinking Kids.” Our students also have access to a stocked library with a Librarian keenly aware of literacy levels and growth in Literacy and Preliteracy skills. The school’s Art and Music curriculum is hands on and promotes student involvement in all mediums under the supervision of our Art and Music Teachers.
Technology integration is another rich piece of our curriculum and is presented in both the 1:1 integration of iPads in our 1st and 2nd grade classrooms and also in the lab time students have weekly with our Technology teacher.
