Greetings John Paulding Families,
Rest assured, our developmental, language-based Prekindergarten and Kindergarten programs are built on the knowledge that each child develops at his or her own rate. These programs strive to develop the whole child socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.
Knowing the demands of the New York Common Core State Standards, opportunities for your children to learn are presented with a multi-sensory, interdisciplinary approach. Their instruction is tailored to meet the varied skill levels of each student, capitalizing on a child's prior knowledge by providing hands-on experiences in the areas of language, math science, technology, social studies, art, music and movement. Structured, organized, teacher-directed activities are balanced with opportunities for student choice which encourages decision making and problem solving.
Respect for self and others is taught by example and through instruction. We respect, value and build on the individual and unique experiences that each child brings to the school.
We will need everyone’s help to reinforce the 3Rs of John Paulding School:
The 3Rs of John Paulding School-
Ready to Learn – We will be good listeners, raise a quiet hand to be called upon to speak and sit appropriately during group lessons.
Respect – We will use kind words, listen to others and take turns.
Responsibility – We will take care of things we share and follow the class rules.
