Greetings Aversboro Families! It is with great excitement that I welcome you to our new school website. Thank you for your patience as we have transitioned over to this new platform. We will continue to enhance and update the website, so please make sure that you frequently visit this valuable source of information. I would like to take this opportunity to share some information with you about what makes our school such a special place for our students and families.
Aversboro Elementary School, nestled in the heart of Garner, is truly a remarkable school. Filled with a community of learners, we proudly boast numerous opportunities that support teaching and learning. Our close-knit staff works collaboratively to support the learning needs of all students in our school. We follow a traditional calendar, which means that our students are in school from late August until early June, with summer break spanning most of June, all of July, and much of August.
As a PBIS school, we take an active approach to teach and reinforce positive behavior. Students have the opportunity to earn Hoot Bucks that can be redeemed at the Hoot Buck Store and to also gain admission to positive behavior celebrations held each quarter. We observe “Super Blue Fridays” throughout the school year and demonstrate unity by wearing our Aversboro blue to say no to bullying in our school. Our PBIS principles are based on the 3 R’s:
- Respect – showing respect for everyone and everything
- Responsible – being responsible for our actions, words, and choices
- Ready – to be the best that we can be
Our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) focus allows us to incorporate the engineering design process into the instructional delivery in all of our classrooms throughout the school. This focus engages students in active learning and provides students with relevant, real world connections to the curriculum. We currently offer a Lego elective in grades kindergarten, first, and third. Additionally, we participate in the STEM collaborative network and frequently seek opportunities to expand our focus.
Aversboro’s active and supportive PTA provides cultural arts events for our students throughout the school year. Fundraising efforts coordinated by parents support all of our students all year long.
Aversboro is an extraordinary school filled with eager and vibrant students and staff! I hope that you feel the warm, special environment of our school every time you enter the doors of Aversboro.
