Five years ago we adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for both Literacy and Mathematics. Primarily, we utilize the acclaimed, algebra-rich MATH EXPRESSIONS program to address the CCSS. Teachers and students have access to other resources and manipulatives to support teaching and learning. Ultimately, we endeavor to develop students who are eager, confident and competent in terms of problem solving, numeracy, measurement, geometry, patterning and algebra, and data and probability. This year, we have begun piloting a responsive approach to providing enrichment and extension opportunities for our students who have already met standard, unit by unit. If you would like to learn more about mathematics in the elementary school, please contact our ES Math Instructional Coach, Aaron Gahringer (
