    Classroom Environment

    Fort Bragg Schools provide a warm and nurturing environment for elementary students. Classroom instruction, student assignments, assessments, and homework are standards based. The focus is on ensuring that all students master DoDEA standards through differentiated instruction and best practices. Classroom instruction is developmental and engaging so students are successful. Instructional time is protected to maximize learning opportunities. It is imperative that students are on time and remain in school throughout the day to capitalize on all opportunities.

    Animals or Pets

    Per DoDEA Regulation 4800.1, before an animal or pet can be brought in to the school for any reason (to include bringing in pets when there are no classes in session), the animal or pet owner must first be cleared through the Nurse's Office and have written approval from the Principal. The pet owner will provide a copy of the veterinarian certificate for the Principal and School Nurse prior to bringing the  animal or pet into the school. A copy of this certificate must be kept in the classroom at all times and a copy retained by the School Nurse in an animal/pet veterinary clearance file. In addition, a copy will also be kept on file in the school office. Animals are visitors at our school, not residents. If your child has any animal allergies, please notify our School Nurse in the school Health Office.

    Water Bottles

    Students are allowed to use personal water containers (plastic only, please) in classrooms and other instructional areas as appropriate. Water bottles should be clearly marked with the student's name and teacher.

    Birthday Celebrations

    Teachers typically acknowledge students' birthdays but do not hold parties for each student. In support of the Fort Bragg Healthy Base Initiative and DoDEA Wellness Policy, parents are encouraged to bring non-food items (pencils, erasers, etc.) or healthy treats, which would be distributed after lunch services. Homemade treats are not allowed due to health and allergy concerns of students. Please do not bring flowers, balloons, or other gifts to the school.


    To avoid interruption of instructional time, flowers or other gifts will not be delivered to students. If we should receive a delivery for a student, we will notify the student's parent and hold it in the office until the end of the school day for the parent to pick up.

    Pledge of Allegiance

    The Pledge of Allegiance or National Anthem will be incorporated into the morning announcements. Participation is not mandatory, but all students are expected to show respect.
