COMMUNITY, CHARACTER, & CREATIVITY

At Mohr we are building community, character, and creativity.  We believe that this begins by fostering an educational environment built upon relationships.  Connecting with families, understanding culture, and embracing diversity help promote this foundational value.  Our dedicated staff pursues innovative strategies that actively engage students in the learning process.  

Common Core State Standards -This year we will continue to focus on implementation of Common Core Curriculum by embracing Balanced Literacy, Writer’s Workshop, and Eureka (Engage New York) math and developing new strategies for mastering these topics

S.T.E.A.M.

(Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math)

Science: Science Fair, Science "Hands-on Lab", Garden Club, Science Olympiad Club

Technology: Our new Chromebooks, Computer Lab, and iPads have strengthened student’s technology skills and enabled them to be not just consumers -but creators of technology.  In order to meet the needs of all students, Mohr teachers continue to spend countless hours on staff development trainings to support student learning and foster creativity, innovation, and collaboration.  With the help of our district Technology Coach, teachers have received amazing support that is seen in the creative work that the students produce. This year our focus is on digital lesson planning.

Engineering: Our students experience exposure to the design process through PLTW (Project Lead the Way) Launch program.  All students have had exposure to Coding during the "Hour of Code" and many participate in 4th/5th grade Coding Club.

Arts: Students participate in regular classes integrating curriculum and the arts.  Improve expert provides classes twice per year.

Math: The transition to Eureka math continues as students learn how to express their thinking and find multiple ways to solve problems and share their thinking.

We support students at all levels of learning and provide an enriching academic and social environment that encourages participation and excellence while embracing individuality.
