Hellyer's School vision is "To prepare all students to successfully continue their education." The school-wide theme is, "We will go to College!" We believe that the foundation for college begins at the elementary level. Expectations for students and staff are high and teachers focus on the Common Core Standards.
A wide variety of programs and services are available for students and parents at Hellyer School. Services and programs are available for English Learners as well as GATE students. Services for these students include, but are not limited to, differentiated instruction in small groups and as individuals, differentiated materials, direct and indirect services from certificated support staff, and extended day interventions. Hellyer teachers participate in ongoing training to meet the needs of second language learners. They have learned the most effective research-based strategies and practices to provide instruction for students who are English Learners or who struggle academically.
G.W. Hellyer’s strives to create a technology-rich learning environment that prepares each child to be resourceful, resilient and innovative. Hellyer is a place that empowers all learners to see themselves as community advocates and agents of change, who can positively impact their community.
Hellyer School is also a place where all are welcome. You can feel it as soon as you come on campus. Families are always gathered outside of classrooms to wait for children, have a chat with the principal, or meet with friends from the neighborhood. They feel that Hellyer School is truly a part of the community. Parent involvement plays a critical role in the success of our students and we encourage participation in a variety of ways, some of which are listed below:
* School Site Council
* Parent Workshops
* Literacy Programs
* Coffee with the Principal Meetings
* Classroom Volunteers
* Kindergarten Transition Meeting for Parents
* Field trip Volunteers
* Safety Committee
* Classes for parents provided by Catholic Charities
* Family reading, math, and science nights.
Please feel free to contact school administration or staff at any time if you have concerns or suggestions.
