Stoney Creek Elementary School Vision
We inspire and empower our students to reach their highest potential and achieve their dreams!
Stoney Creek Is A Success By Design and a PBIS School
Stoney Creek is a Success by Design school which means we have the ability to utilize staff members in creative ways in order to help increase academic achievement to help enhance the school's vision and mission. Grades K-4 are departmentalized with 3 Math teachers and 3 Literacy teachers at each grade, with the exception of one teacher on each grade K, 1, 2 and 3 who teaches all subjects. Grade 5 has 2 Literacy, 2 Math, and 2 Science teachers. Departmentalization allows our teachers to focus on a specific subject in order to master their craft. We also use our instructional support personnel as coaches in literacy and math to provide in-class and one-on-one coaching for teachers.
Students with disabilities participate with general education peers and are held to the same standards for achievement and growth. We used blended models of inclusion and pull out services to address a student's specific academic needs. Our talent development program challenges our students to utilize higher order thinking and problem-solving skills in their everyday learning. Students who are English Learners receive intensive support both in the regular classroom setting and in pull out classes. We are focused on continuous improvement in the delivery of quality instruction. Our goal is for students to leave Stoney Creek thoroughly prepared for middle school and well on their way to college and meaningful employment.
We are a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support school (PBIS). PBIS is a data-driven school-wide initiative for improving social competence and academic achievement for all students. As a PBIS school we focus on character education, universal expectations across the school for student procedures and behavior, and rewarding positive behavior. We utilize a House system for students and staff to earn points for their house for exhibiting our Essential 5 behavioral competencies.
