The Maclary Staff uses the Positive Behavior Support Program (PBS) in order to foster students' responsibility for their education and behavior. Our PTA supports PBS by providing funds and manpower for special monthly rewards.
The Maclary staff provides opportunities for students to participate in talent development classes and enrichment activities, instrumental and string lessons, chorus, curriculum related field trips, assemblies, and after school enrichment and support classes.
Special education services are provided based on individual student need and foster inclusion in the general curriculum as appropriate. Struggling students have additional opportunities for support through reading resource, mentoring, tutoring, intervention classes, and guidance.
We are fortunate to house the Wings for Learning Preschool Program for three and four year old children.
Maclary students participate in classes and activities to foster academic growth and strengthen motor skills.
YMCA before/after care is offered.
The curriculum is designed to ensure that all students meet / exceed state standards in all subject areas.
The Maclary staff implements a daily 90 minute literacy block that offers students a diverse approach to reading and text-based writing. The use of our comprehensive classroom libraries fosters a love of reading and improves student fluency.
Trailblazers, a standards based investigative Math program, is used at all grade levels. Students learn multiple methods for problem solving; use manipulatives to facilitate understanding of numbers, operations and computation; and work cooperatively, communicating mathematically.
Science lessons at all grade levels are presented using the Smithsonian kits. Staff has implemented a schoolwide graphic organizer to maintain consistency and develop students' writing skills beginning in Kindergarten through fifth grade.
Comprehensive staff development and book studies are on-going to ensure that teachers and support staff continue to use best practices.
