Math: Counting, sorting, patterning, shapes and simple addition help students build skills that lead to complex mathematical understanding in later years. Problem solving and reasoning are taught to bring concepts from the abstract to the concrete.

Art: Through the Rincon Valley Art Docent program, students are given the opportunity to learn art appreciation and participate in specially designed hands-on art lessons.

Science: Each campus has a Rincon Valley Educational Foundation funded science lab which allows an easy connection to the science curriculum

Library: Students learn library skills and have the opportunity to check out books during their weekly visit to the library.

Language Arts: Students learn the building blocks of reading and writing through our adopted reading program, “Benchmark Advance.” Phonics and literature are used to instill confidence, a love of reading, and learning through reading.

Music: Each class visits a music teacher weekly for rhythm activities, dance, songs and beginning musical theory. Classroom music is also an important part of the day.

Technology: Student devices are available for use in each classroom. Students access Waterford Early Reading in their classrooms. This program supplements the daily phonics instruction. They also have access to the school computer lab.

Physical Education: Weekly visits to our PE instructor build large muscles, develop balance and stability, teach body awareness and spatial orientation. Sharing and taking turns is also emphasized.



The District operates an extended day care program for students in grades TK-8. Extended Care is offered before school, beginning at 7AM, and after school until 6 PM on regular school days, August (first day of school) through June (last day of school).

The Extended Care Program is designed to provide a safe and supervised environment for children. A variety of age-appropriate activities are planned which may include: table games, expressive play, arts and crafts, outdoor play, computer and homework time, story time and a daily snack.

Registration has been moved online.  Click here for more information.
