Our Vision

Beverly J. Martin Elementary School is a school where all students are welcomed, engaged and able to fully access curriculum and learning. Students are taught how to become critical thinkers who effectively evaluate and organize their learning. Teachers practice and instruct based on evidence of that learning. Together, students, staff and families focus on continued growth and change. Home and school collaborate to positively impact learning and to deepen our understanding of all cultures. We teach and embody the BJM Community Agreement through a school wide positive behavior system. The school culture fosters a love for learning and values education as a human right.

Beverly J. Martin School Wide Goals 2012-2013

Literacy: High quality literacy instruction will provide explicit teaching of comprehension, accuracy, fluency, phonics and vocabulary so that students will accomplish grade level meaning of text; critically analyze their reading; understand the connection and value of reading in academic, personal and work contexts; and understand the reading, technology and writing connection.

Math: Staff will instruct specific math skills, vocabulary development and math literacy that supports student’s abilities with higher order thinking skills.

Technology: Staff will implement standard based technology units to deepen the understanding and use of technology as it relates to student learning.

Cultural Competency: BJM will create an environment where all students and adults are believed in, supported, encouraged and expected to positively and effectively impact theirs and other learning, culture and community.

Response to Intervention: The RtI process will directly impact effective Tier I core instruction; differentiation; professional learning community work; teacher expectations; data driven dialogue; decision making for students and adults; and review of special education, AIS, attendance, behavior, new entrant processes and movement within Tiers.

Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS): Staff and students will develop, internalize and transfer social and emotional behaviors that directly link to learning and personal growth including: respect, responsibility and physical/academic/emotional/cultural safety.
