Welcome to NBES
Welcome to New Brighton Elementary School, where we believe
"small paws make big impressions." Our goal is to provide a strong
foundation for education in a safe, nurturing atmosphere where
students are recognized as individuals.
We have a staff of highly qualified professionals who work
together to continuously build on early-learning concepts in order
to provide students leaving the elementary school with the academic
skills to be successful in the middle school and beyond.
In order to prepare students for the challenges ahead, we have
expanded the educational opportunities at New Brighton Elementary.
Full-day kindergarten was implemented in 2009-10, which offers our
youngest students the opportunity for a deeper understanding of the
curriculum, involving more hands-on centers and the extra time for
specialized activities. We also have invested in a new reading
series. Treasures (click for link), published by McGraw-Hill, is a
challenging series aligned to the Pennsylvania academic standards;
and as a teacher recently told me, "forces the students to think
critically about reading." These initiatives, along with the
establishment of a new science lab, advances in technology, and the
integration of Study Island, an online program which provides
skills practice, will help prepare our students for the future.
Realizing education is a cooperative responsibility shared by
the family and the school, I invite you to visit the elementary
school and communicate frequently with your child's teachers.
Teachers are readily available by telephone and email. My door is
always open; I can be reached at extension 103 or by email
We are honored to have the opportunity to share in the
development of your child during these formative years. Have a
great school year.
