Laurel Elementary School
(541) 998-2386 | 1401 Laurel St
As a K-4 school, Laurel Elementary is a safe and nurturing environment that provides our students a solid academic and social foundation for success. Core classroom instruction includes daily dedicated 90 and 60 minute blocks for Reading/Language Arts and Mathematics respectively. Core instruction also includes Social Studies, Writing, and Inquiry based Science units. Because we are committed to a comprehensive experience, we are one of the few elementary schools offering both Media Skills and Music programs, taught by specialists, rather than classroom teachers. All students receive both Media Skills and Music every week. Both of these programs are frequently enhanced by bringing in experts in specific areas such as juggling and drumming. Laurel’s Positive Behavior Interventions and Support system revolves around three big ideas: Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful. By teaching students the specific behavior expectations for each area of the school, we have created an environment that is predictable and safe for our kids. The system teaches students behavioral expectations for each area of the school and provides student incentives such as Lunch with the Principal, Secretaries, or even the Police Chief, Leopard Spots, and classroom awards during our monthly assemblies.
