Teaching for understanding: Organizing for collaborative work.
Eastman Avenue Elementary School will achieve proficiency as measured in Language Arts and Math assessments based on CCSS. Students will achieve proficiency through a rigorous instructional program that employs the intended curriculum in all instructional areas.
Students have access to the computer lab and math lab on a regular basis. Students use iPads in the classroom. Internet is in all classrooms. The computer lab is open after school for student use through our club program. Teachers have multi-media in the classrooms. Our goal is for students to be technology proficient when they leave Eastman. Teachers use technology to communicate with parents through technology such as ClassDoJo to gives parents immediate feedback on child’s progress.

Tutoring is provided when students need extra help. We have a School Psychologist and Social Worker to help students on a daily basis with conflict. We have an active anti-bullying program that is supported with staff for the goal that students feel happy and safe so they can learn!
