Welcome to Sembach Elementary school where we are "Doing Big Things for Little People" and home of the Tigers. Sembach Elementary School is a great little school. There are approximately 240 students ranging in ages from 4 years old to 9 years old. There are approximately 40 staff members servicing these students. This group includes 1 administrator, 13 classroom teachers, 17 specialists, and about 10 support staff members.
Sembach Elementary School has identified two school-wide goals in support of the continuous school improvement process. The SES faculty and staff members have developed classroom interventions to increase student achievement in the areas of reading comprehension and math proficiency. However, empowering students to become independent, creative, problem-solvers who demonstrate exemplary character in a global society is a long-term process for our children to achieve.
Our children are important to us. We have a limited time to groom and prepare them for the challenges of tomorrow. To truly be successful at this, it takes an entire community. You, the parents are their first teachers while we, the educators, focus on making those connections between the classrooms, home and real world situations. We need to ask the question, "How will our children respond to real life events when we are no longer available to guide their decision making?" Preparing our children is a tremendous responsibility that SES takes very seriously.
Some ways that we work to prepare students include:
What you can expect as a partner:
- 1. Start where the children are. (Formative Assessments)
- 2. Know where the children are going. (Curriculum & Instruction)
- 3. Expect to get your children to their goal. (Summative Assessments)
- 4. Support your children along the way. (Continuous School Improvement-CSI)
