Dear Fir Grove Families,
Hello and welcome to Fir Grove Elementary School! We are
excited to have you join our community of learners. At Fir Grove Elementary we
are committed to providing high-level instruction for our students. Our
instructional focus is to provide a rigorous and systematic academic
instructional program that is aligned with the Common Core State Standards. We
strive to develop critical thinkers who achieve high levels. Our ultimate goal
is to provide all students with the skills to achieve post high school success.
In addition, our school utilizes PBIS (Positive Behavioral
Intervention and Supports). We expect each student to Be a Learner, Be
Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Safe. PBIS practices are rooted in explicitly
teaching behavior expectations in all settings across the school and
reinforcing student behaviors through a variety of classroom and school-wide
The staff at Fir Grove believes that teaching children is a
team effort. You are your child’s first teacher and we have much to learn from
your experiences and knowledge in order for your child to be successful in
school. You and your child are important members of our team. You are welcome
to attend our monthly assemblies that focus on life skills and the celebration
of learning. We hope that you will find community with our supportive and
dedicated parent group that meets monthly. We welcome volunteers and look
forward to working with you.
Our community is always learning and growing. If you have
any ideas, thoughts, or concerns you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them.
I look forward to meeting with your children and family
during your time at school. Let’s have an amazing school year! I’m proud to be
a “Furry Grover”!
