Message to Parents

Dear Hominy Valley Families,
 
Welcome to Hominy Valley Elementary School!
 
On a daily basis we provide an excellent academic program to all of our students.  We are an accredited member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. We serve approximately 400 students in grades Kindergarten through Fourth Grade.
 
We utilize the North Carolina State Standards for the foundation for our academic work.  In addition, we strive to provide each child 21st Century technology skills. All classrooms are equipped with a Document Camera and Data Projector.   Every classroom teacher utilizes a SMARTboard for technology integration as well as two computer labs and iPads, which are available for classroom use. 
 
As a school-wide Title I school, we offer students a wide-range of reading instruction based on each child's individual reading level.  All students participate in a Balanced Literacy block on a daily basis. Our spelling program is Words Their Way, based on each child's independent spelling level. We also utilize a hands-on, experiential math curriculum through the daily use of Investigations mathematics program.   Hands-on science instruction is facilitated by using an experimental-based approach and supported by Foss Kits and a science lab.
 
In addition, our students participate in physical activity 150 minutes each week, including two physical education classes and recess. Students also participate in weekly instruction in music and art. Guidance lessons occur in our classrooms on a monthly basis. Students attend media classes each week. Additionally, all students attend computer lab two to three times each week. Each child has a thirty-minute lunch break.
 
It is a privilege to serve the students and staff at Hominy Valley and has been for the past nine years.   Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at 828-670-5045 or angie.jackson@bcsemail.org
