iframe>Welcome to Prune Hill!
Prune Hill Elementary consists of a well-trained and caring staff committed to providing a quality educational program through traditional, looping, or blended-class models. Literacy is a primary focus of our school with an emphasis on reading instruction and literature appreciation. Using the six-trait writing approach, students are involved in writing on a daily basis. Instruction in spelling and handwriting is ongoing. Social studies and science (FOSS kits) are interwoven into writing instruction as well. Each Fall, grade level teams/teachers provide a Curriculum Night for parents, to explain in detail the academic and behavioral expectations of students.
Hands-on, visual mathematics allows students to go from the concrete to the abstract. Students are taught a variety of problem-solving strategies to empower them to be independent learners. Technology is integrated into lessons, with an on-site computer lab of 30 stations available to students as well as iPad and iPod mobile carts used to research and enhance learning.
Music, PE, Library, and Computer lab are part of our curriculum taught here at Prune Hill on a weekly basis.
Back to School Drop-In is an opportunity for your penguin to meet the teacher and drop off that heavy backpack full of supplies in late August!
Continual staff development promotes program refinement, which keeps us on the cutting edge! Shared leadership fosters respect and caring, providing a common vision in which students are empowered to be contributing members of the community. We are an inclusion community where each child’s starting place and learning pace is valued.
