McCurdy Elementary occupies the first floor of our building. We have two classrooms for each grade level, a teacher in each classroom. Our teachers are all highly qualified and our staff includes Level II and Level III teachers. Our curriculum combines the framework of Core Knowledge with the Common Core. We are in the process of adding technology to our school, including a SuccessMaker lab.
As part of our charter, students are encouraged to participate in service learning projects throughout the year. Projects that students have worked on include raising money for Heifer International, the Heart Association, and Earth’s Birthday Project. They have written cards for Blue Star Mothers, collected food for the hungry, cleaned the campus, performed for volunteers and schoolmates and generally worked for the good of the community. It is a treasured part of our year. Volunteerism is a required part of school enrollment and parents and family members have contributed hundreds of hours in and out of the classroom. It makes an amazing difference. We are very proud of our little charter school.
