Welcome to Greensburg Elementary School, Home of the Pirates.
It gives me great pleasure, as Principal of Greensburg Elementary School, to welcome you to our school family. Our highly qualified staff members strive to provide the highest quality education for your children. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of learners while providing rigorous and relevant instruction based on the Indiana Standards. We have high expectations for our students both in academics and behavior. Time to Teach, an evidence based, highly successful set of classroom management strategies is used to teach our students classroom expectations and procedures. Students will learn expectations and procedure for common areas in our school such as the hallways, restrooms, playgrounds, and the Pirate Cafe.
We are truly excited that our school is 1:1! Each of our students will have the use of a device to enhance his/her learning experiences. Kindergarten and first grade will be using IPads. Second grade will be using the Uno, a hybrid computer/tablet Windows device. Grades three through five will be equipped with a Dell Latitude. Staff members are excited to integrate technology into the daily lessons and activities to enhance student learning.
Finally, I firmly believe that when children are surrounded with a support system that includes school, parents, and community. Through this support, they will develop into lifelong achievers and will become the next leaders of tomorrow. Here are some ways you as a parent(s) you can help your child achieve academic success:
1) Reading with your child(ren) nightly;
2) Reviewing school work with them;
3) Helping with homework;
4) Insisting on appropriate behavior;
5) Calling or checking with their teachers routinely;
6) Having high expectations for your child(ren). Let them know you expect their best, and;
7) Volunteering and supporting Pirate Boosters parent group.
Again, welcome to Greensburg Elementary School. Here’s to a FANTASTIC school year!
