The students at Story Elementary School have the unique opportunity to learn how to play the violin, in an after school program. Once a week, the 1st-5th grade students meet to learn new techniques on the violin. The students in the class vary by grade and ability level and the class size ranges from 3-12.
Reading at home is an important habit for children to have, and studies have shown that students who read independently do better on tests and have both a stronger vocabulary and core knowledge base. Reading is also habit forming; the more a person reads, the more they want to read.
To meet the needs of the Story Students and families, Story School offers an after-school program four days a week called “Kid’s Club”. This extra time in school not only gives the students a chance to finish their homework with assistance, but also provides extra remediation and enrichment opportunities for the kids.
The primary teachers from Henry A. Coffeen recently attended a conference focusing on literacy. The training focused on how to incorporate authentic reading and writing choices into a literacy block that produces students who are highly engaged and who love learning!
For the first District Writing Assessment of the year, Henry A. Coffeen’s second grade students focused on how to write an opinion paragraph supported with facts. In an effort to integrate science, students studied information about dinosaurs, specifically, Apatosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the Velociraptor. Students chose the dinosaur they thought was the most interesting to be the subject of their opinion paragraph.
It’s the season of giving thanks at Story School, and we are celebrating a season of thankfulness with “Thank It Forward” certificates. Not only are we letting our friends at school know that we are thankful for them, but we are also sharing certificates of thankfulness with family and friends in our community.
Many studies have shown substantial evidence that family and community involvement is a crucial resource for rural schools and has a strong effect on student achievement. The students at Story School continued to be supported greatly by the actions of the Story community.
