Exemplary Programs
At East Millsboro Elementary School we put children first as we work to create a motivating and challenging learning environment. Programs for student achievement are designed to provide instruction for the varied needs and interests of students. ExCEL is an academic enrichment program for gifted students in grades four and five that encourages critical and creative thinking. East Millsboro provides small group instructional opportunities in both reading and math in order to meet the individual needs of our students. Our mentoring program pairs community members with students who would benefit, this along with our Positive Behavior Support Plan provides consistent expectations and rewards across grade levels. Band and choral opportunities are available for upper elementary students as well as supplemental computerized curriculums in reading and math allow students to advance through individualized software at all grade-levels.

Curriculum Highlights
Tightly coordinated instruction, high expectations, and careful planning and monitoring are pathways to student achievement. Using the Delaware Standards, reading expectations are supported by leveled readers, MacMillan McGraw-Hill "Treasures" and a variety of effective instructional strategies. These materials are designed to assist all students to reading success through the mastery of necessary skills and strategies. Five key facets of reading are addressed so that our students become life-long readers. They include teaching students to hear, manipulate, and identify the individual sounds needed for reading (Phonemic Awareness). Students learn the relationships between sounds and letters (Phonics) and how to blend sounds to make words. Fluency and Vocabulary are the bridge to Comprehension. Assessment pieces, including the DIBELS and the Smarter Balance Assessment help monitor student progress. The Bridges Math series emphasizes both reasoning and problem solving.
