At Coffeen Elementary School it is our primary goal to foster a student-centered culture with high expectations for each student to reach his or her full potential.
We commit to having the highest expectations for ALL students. To ensure the success of our goal, we use ‘Response to Intervention’, ‘Positive Behavior Supports’, and the ‘No Excuses’ Philosophy. Click on the attached links or contact your child’s teacher for more information on these programs.
Our Response to Intervention framework ensures students of all ability levels receive high quality support matched to individual needs and goals. Individual progress is monitored frequently to insure that instruction is having the desired effect. If students are not making progress with one instructional approach, the intervention is changed and more targeted and intensive support is provided.
Our Research Based Behavior Intervention Model is agreed on school wide by Coffeen Elementary School. We use Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) as a tool for teaching expected behaviors. This is a proactive program teaching expectations before misbehavior occurs. The students recognize these expectations as “Respectful, Responsible and Safe”.
We teach READING and WRITING instructional activities for a minimum of 90 minutes daily, using the comprehensive 90 Minute Model. Balanced Literacy is the core of our language arts program, and systematic strategies are used to promote comprehension and critical thinking. For information designed specifically for parents click on these informational brochures Balanced Literacy and Reading Strategies or contact your child's teacher.
Students also participate in a minimum of 45 minutes of MATH instructional activities daily. For more information about our math instructional techniques go to https://www.engageny.org/mathematics or contact your child’s teacher. SOCIAL STUDIES and SCIENCE are daily integrated into our reading, writing, and math programs.
In addition to our core academic curriculum, we offer physical education, music, art, and a library class weekly.
