All children everywhere deserve the opportunity that is unlocked for them by education. Ann Cotton
Welcome to the Heyburn Elementary website. Please take some time to check out all of the information that it contains, including the upcoming year calendar, school supplies, handbooks, and more!
As a new administrator to Heyburn, I look forward to learning all about the students, staff, and parents as well as the educational community that has been created here in St. Maries. Although I have only been here a short amount of time, I have already found that there is great pride in the community and in the school system. I look forward to continuing previous traditions as well as working with the staff and parents in moving toward exciting academic growth and opportunities for our students!
Heyburn Elementary has a staff of approximately 40 and a student population of around 350. These enrollment numbers allow us to provide class sizes of about 21 students per teacher. We are able to also have a qualified paraprofessional staff that can aid in the education of our students. The smaller class sizes, as well as additional trained staff, allows Heyburn to utilize RTI (Response to Intervention) practices as well the Title 1 program which provides our students one on one help as well as interventions, differentiation, and scaffolding to help our students, all students, find success.
An exciting new development for Heyburn Elementary is the new math curriculum, Go Math. This math program fosters critical thinking as well as writing skills while promoting a strong, enriched math program. Components of the math program include enhanced vocabulary development, engaging online elements comprised of videos, electronic textbook, and practice or review modules, hands on engagement using manipulatives to concrete concepts, enrichment and support activities, and much more. I have had the chance to use this curriculum previously as a teacher as well as observing teachers use it within their classrooms, and found the students enjoyed the program and excelled!
I would like to emphasize that my door is always open! If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or would just like to stop in for a get-to-know-you conversation, please feel free to drop by!
