A message from the Principal:
I am thrilled to be the principal of Red Lick Elementary. We have outstanding staff members and students, supportive parents, and an active PTCO which all work together as a family, contributing to the success of the school.
Readers are Leaders! Our Red Lick students emphasize that quality by the amazing points they achieve each year with our Accelerated Reading program. The AR program encourages students to read by giving them an opportunity to earn points that they can spend in the AR store. A new curriculum addition this year will be the use of a research-based collection of reading material from Fountas & Pinnell.
In the third and fourth grade, our Mustang Ambassadors display the attributes of great leaders. With our Character Education program, Bucket Fillers, every student is encouraged to "fill other's buckets," and we challenge every student to focus on Mustang P.R.I.D.E.
Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) is built around a commitment to and a series of strategies for applying the pedagogy of gifted education to enrichment learning opportunitites for all students. SEM Fridays will be the day your child has an opportunity to engage and enjoy new learning experiences that they choose (gardening, Mustang News, cheerleading, cooking, sewing, etc.).
All kindergaten through fourth grade students will be learning conversational Spanish with a certified teacher this year! Technology classes will be taught by Mrs. Farrar where our students will learn some coding along with other technology TEKs.
I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year. Please continue to visit our website to stay current with school events.
