Welcome to the Mary F. Janvier Elementary School webpage.  Our school is a place where all children learn in a nurturing, yet academically challenging environment.  All students have the opportunity for success at Mary F. Janvier Elementary School as they are instructed by dynamic educators who are committed towards meeting each child’s individual needs.  Student creativity and curiosity are developed and recognized while maintaining an active learning environment that promotes cooperation, collaboration, and builds student confidence through positive communication.

As the educational leader of Mary F. Janvier Elementary School, I believe that it is essential that a strong school – community relationship exists.  Parent involvement in their child’s learning is needed and the involvement of community resources must occur in a manner that reinforces the importance of education. The instructional foundation at Mary F. Janvier Elementary School emphasizes that all students can learn and achieve, students need an appropriately challenging academic environment to grow, and learning is a process.  As a school community, we take pride in the growth of our children and celebrate their achievements.

Approximately, 550 students in grades Pre K-2 receive daily classroom instruction by professional staff who utilize current instructional strategies, the Benchmark Workshop program, and the Ready Classroom Mathematics program to foster growth in the target areas of literacy and mathematics. Additionally, an emphasis is placed on student social – emotional growth through formal Morning Meeting sessions and check – ins throughout the school day. Technological resources, including Chrome Books, Promethean Boards, and document cameras are used in a relevant manner.  Of note, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade students are assigned their own chromebook for daily use. Science, Social Studies, and Health are woven into instruction both formally and informally with students also participating in weekly Library, Art, Music, STEM – Based Technology, and Physical Education lessons.  The Mary F. Janvier Elementary School staff is committed towards providing educationally rich experiences for our students with the goal of leading our children towards the acquisition of skills that will serve them throughout their lifetime.
