School

We have had an incredible year at Sheridan Elementary.
Sheridan houses 528 students in pre-kindergarten through 5th
grade. It is our belief that we are all stakeholders in the
educational lives of every student. Through innovative and
challenging educational experiences, we strive to meet the
individual needs of all students at Sheridan.
Opportunities for students are abundant at Sheridan Elementary
School. Students have access to computers in labs and in
classrooms, as well as the use of StarBoards.
All third through fifth grade students received IPad this year.
Students used the iPad at home and school to enhance learning.
Voyager, our school-wide intervention program, is one of the
ways we ensure no child is left behind. Students have their
individual learning needs addressed and met in math
and reading intervention through this program.
Our Professional Learning Community (PLC) includes reviews of
student work, student achievement data analysis,
implementation of effective instructional practices, and reviews
of current research. Since formal education is based on the
premise that students learn as a direct result of classroom
instruction, our teachers implement Explicit Direct Instruction
(EDI). EDI helps teachers deliver effective lessons that can
significantly improve achievement for all learners.
We also have maintained our partnership with the Twenty-First
Century Afterschool Program which incorporated STEM lessons
(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) for
students.
Our active Parent Teacher Association and School Improvement
Council continue to support our instructional program. Students
serve the community through a variety of service learning
projects, which includes but is not limited to, Thanksgiving Food
Drive, Relay for Life, March of Dimes, and Pennies for Patients.
Through the hard work and dedication of our students, staff,
and parents, Sheridan Elementary “Home of the Super Stars”
continues to be a great place for our students.

* Length of contract = 185+ days.
**Prior year audited financial data available.
