Poston Road Elementary School is a school for students in kindergarten through grade 5. Poston Road Elementary's mission is to provide a supportive, educational environment in which each child is encouraged to reach his/her own personal best academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Parents and community work together to enable our children to develop their own unique potential and to become self-directed, independent members of society.
Through active learning techniques that include critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills, students will be prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities of a changing society.
A PROUD HISTORY
Poston Road was originally built in 1957. In 1962, twelve classrooms, a library, kitchen, and multipurpose room were added. Since 1994 the enrollment has held relatively steady near 425 students.
Poston Road Elementary is a partner with the Safe Place Agency. Safe Place is universally recognized and used by youth across America as the place to go for immediate help and safety.
Poston Road Elementary has a School-wide Positive Behavior Supports Plan. Teachers track citizenship progress through a website called Class Dojo. Students have the opportunity to earn positive and negative "PAW" points. Positive points can be turned in for rewards. On Fridays, a Class Dojo report is sent home to all parents as a communication tool to update parents on their students' progress.
Poston Road Elementary has adopted the Kelso's Choice Conflict-Resolution program. This conflict-management curriculum for elementary students is based on the premise that every child is capable of beaming a peacemaker. Designed around Kelso the Frog, this program offers nine options students can choose from to resolve minor conflicts on their own. Students will be able to determine the difference between minor problems they can handle and serious problems that require an adult's help.
