Merrick Moore Elementary School
Traditional K-5 Community of Learning
Welcome to the Merrick-Moore Elementary web site! We hope you find it to be a useful resource to help you learn about our school and keep up to date with our latest news.
Merrick-Moore is a traditional K-5 exciting, creative community of learning. Students are challenged to develop the life-long academic skills and social characteristics needed for success in middle and secondary school and beyond. We believe that we provide a supportive, well-structured, and well organized environment through uniform policies for homework, discipline, promotion, and communicating with parents. We further believe that every child, regardless of assessed or presumed ability, has the right to be given the opportunity to learn skills and ideas appropriate to grade placement and the national Common Core and Essential Standards .
Merrick-Moore's instructional methods utilized in presenting the Common Core and Essential Standards are traditional and based firmly upon research. All students are guaranteed access to the basic grade level curriculum in addition to opportunities for growth in character development and participation in the arts. Instruction consists of teacher-directed, whole-class lessons supported by textbooks, supplemental materials, and available technology. Students are taught to use higher-level thinking skills to demonstrate mastery of basic concepts learned. Students who qualify under state guidelines for the Exceptional Children's Program receive additional instruction from teachers specially trained in that field. Students also benefit from other individual and small group experiences such as resource, and literacy. A school-wide discipline system promotes uninterrupted instructional time and exceptional student behavior.
