Exemplary Programs
Rehoboth Elementary School (RES) continues to implement the Positive Behavior Support program. Our school-wide expectations are Respect, Excellence and Safety. Students learn about the expectations for each area of the building through “Cool Tool” lessons. Expected behaviors are reinforced by awarding “Starfish” coupons. Rehoboth has a history of being an award winning Positive Behavior Support school.
At Rehoboth Elementary we have a commitment to expose our students to a variety of fine arts opportunities. Every spring, students put on a Broadway-caliber musical featuring singing, dancing, and a beautiful stage set. RES also features a top-notch general band, Jazz Band and Chorus which perform each season for students and the community.
Parents and community are an important part of Rehoboth Elementary School. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) sponsors activities for students such as the RES Teaching Garden which supports student learning.

Curriculum Highlights
Our curriculum is based on Delaware and Common Core standards. We use the Imagine It reading series and Investigations math program to provide instruction for language arts and math respectively. To enhance our curriculum the students use Accelerated Reader (AR) which allows the students to read a book at their given reading level and take a computer-based comprehension/vocabulary quiz to check for understanding. With AR, almost every book in our library has an available quiz making it easy for students to find an AR book they enjoy. We reinforce basic math calculation with Math Facts in a Flash. Students use the web-based programs such as Reading Eggs to practice the concepts taught through the curriculum for both reading and math. Students earn blue ribbons as they master the concepts. The use of technology in the forms of SmartBoards, laptops and the iPod touch engage students and make learning fun!
