Exemplary Programs
Gallaher Elementary is both a Blue Ribbon School and a Superstars in Education Award Winner! At Gallaher Elementary, we believe that educating the "whole child" and partnering with parents are critical to ensuring student success. Our instructional program is child centered, developmentally appropriate, and helps students develop self-esteem while working toward meeting Common Core Standards. The expressive arts are an integral component of our curriculum and promote a broader understanding of our diverse world. Our Positive Behavior Support behavior system provides a school wide set of expectations that is taught and reinforced by all staff. Students earn "panther dollars" for demonstrating P.A.W.S. principles. They are: Practice Problem Solving, Acting Responsibly, Winning Respect, and Showing Kindness. With their "panther dollars" students can purchase incentives such as PBS Gym and monthly celebrations such as: Game Day, Water Ice Events, School Dances and much more!

Curriculum Highlights
During our reading block, teachers strengthen all components of reading. Our data-based approach to reading instruction ensures that all students are receiving instruction that is tailored to meet their individualized need during our flexible group time. We begin with this solid foundation and extend the instruction to reach the rigor outlined in the Common Core State Standards. Our Math Connects Program meets Common Core State Standards by establishing strong core concept knowledge and then challenges our students to become real world problem solvers. Our school participates in the differentiated instruction model that creates multiple paths for learning. Students of different abilities or learning styles experience ways to develop and express skills and knowledge as part of the learning process, and take greater responsibility for their learning. Our Academic Advancement Program includes multiple opportunities directed toward the unique needs of each child.
