Church Street School acknowledges the importance of parent partnership as key to ensuring students’ academic, social and emotional success at school. Science and technology are at the core of their instruction; the teachers collaborate to develop thematic units of study emphasizing the connections between different content areas that help students develop. Grade-specific units connect the areas of English Language Arts, mathematics, science and social studies and include many hands-on activities to make learning meaningful. All students are encouraged to do several types of writing-narrative, expository, persuasive in an attempt to assist them with becoming effective communicators.
Through the support of the PTA and School-Based Council, Church Street families participate in activities throughout the school year including: Parents-As-Reading-Partners, Carnival, Math/Science/Technology Fair, Book Fair, Author Visits, and trips to many interesting and educational destinations. Additionally, workshops, on topics of interest identified by parents, are conducted throughout the year to assist parents in supporting their youngsters at home.
