Learn more about Kirby's Mill Elementary School.

Mission

Kirby's Mill Elementary School is committed to inspiring students to reach their full potential as lifelong learners and socially responsible citizens in our diverse and ever-changing world.

Academics

Kirby's Mill offers a diverse, differentiated curriculum that meets the needs of the individual learner. Our Writer's Workshop model of instruction offers students the benefit of whole class instruction, small group instruction, and individualized conferencing. The Reader's Workshop and Guided Reading model will ensure students receive instruction at their level rather than the more traditional "one size fits all" type of instruction.

Clubs

Kirby's Mill offers a wide variety of clubs before and after school. The clubs are run by the school staff in a safe and nurturing environment. Some of the clubs offered include Student Ambassador, Board Games, Lego, Sports, Art, Guitar, Kindness, Crochet, Book Cooks, Cooking, and Yearbook . Students are able to choose a club(s) of their choice in the fall and spring.

Teachers

Kirby's Mill values professional growth and provides learning opportunities for staff throughout the year. Teacher-run Professional Learning Communities are offered, as well as grade level Professional Learning Communities by administrators. School-wide faculty meetings and district-wide cohorts and EdCamps are also utilized to deliver and facilitate meaningful professional growth.

Supports

MTPS provides comprehensive services and supports for its students. These include ESL Programs, Basic Skills Instruction in Math and Reading, Differentiated LAL curriculum, home instruction, 504 Accommodations, and a continuum of programs for students with disabilities. I&RS Teams are organized to provide interventions and strategies for students experiencing difficulties in the school setting. School Counselors, Nurses, and Behaviorist address emotional, medical, and behavioral needs.

Health

Kirby's Mill is always looking for ways to promote life-long healthy choices and exercise. Our Recess Runners Program encourages the students to stay active during recess, and they have the opportunity to earn charms for every lap they run. The school collaborates with community members to run our annual Health Fair to achieve this goal. Stations such as Fitness, Nutrition, and Emotional Well-Being are set up to educate the school community on how to stay healthy mentally and physically.

Parents

Kirby's Mill is a busy, vibrant, wonderful place to be, and we value our families and our community. Many of our programs and activities would not be possible if it were not for the hard work and generosity of our Home & School Association (HSA) and our Medford Education Foundation (MEF). These two organizations have helped us do everything from stock classroom libraries with instructionally appropriate reading books to furnishing classrooms with technology.

Facilities

Kirby's Mill is a part of the district's initiative to Go Green. Solar panels, and geothermal energy are all part of what makes and runs our school.

School safety

School safety and security are a top priority in Medford Township. MTPS facilities employ a comprehensive access control policy and building based system. Designated technology infrastructure supports the overall district wide security protocols. Video surveillance and communication systems are in place within and outside of all facilities. All administration and staff are certified on a consistent district security response protocol. Various types of building and district response drills are completed on a monthly basis in cooperation with Medford Township's Public Safety personnel. A School Resource Officer is assigned to the middle school campus in addition to our ongoing partnership with the Medford Township Public Safety Department.

Technology

Students in Medford begin at a very early age exploring an array of technology to engage in the 8.1 and 8.2 standards. As early as Pre-School, students use technology to investigate, hypothesize, collect and analyze data and extrapolate understandings to unknown scenarios. Students utilize individualize devices throughout their learning environments beginning in 2nd grade through our 1:1 program which virtually tears down walls of our physical learning environments to bring a world of learning to each student. In Grades 1-5, every student engages in Engineering units that extend and support lessons they learn in their Science Classrooms. Civil, Chemical, Transportation, Geotechnical and Environmental engineering concepts are delivered through hands-on units that focus on content, but also on the engineering design process. In the "Fab" Labs, students utilize various robotic devices to understand algorithms, computer science and the foundational elements of coding.

Beyond the "academics," we have a top-notch staff delivering Music, Art, and Physical Education every day. Our walls are beautifully decorated throughout the year with artwork spanning many eras. A culminating Art Show at the end of the year transforms our school into a vibrant Art Studio and features the artwork of every student in our building. In Physical Education, our teacher imparts life-long healthy choices and exercise. Programs at Kirby's Mill also focus on the character development of our students. We celebrate the wonderful choices students make every day by highlighting their efforts through our "Caught Being Good" program. Public displays and announcements are made throughout the building celebrating those deeds that students do every day that build their character and make Kirby's Mill a great place to work and learn. As a community center, Kirby's Mill holds many events throughout the year that foster parent involvement. Parents assist in daily lessons throughout our classrooms and help out in our school library. We also bring families together through the following yearly events: Kindergarten Festivals; Unplugged Day; American Education Week Parent Visitations; Welcome Back Picnic: Movie Night; African American Achievement Program; Earth Day Celebration; Valentine's Day Dance; Line Dance Night. To promote spirit and school pride, Kirby's Mill has great fun throughout the year through our Spirit Days, "Can't Wait for Crazy Summer Hair" Day, Sports Jersey Days, Pajama Day, Variety Show, Super Bowl Festivity Day, and Mix-Up Day. You never know what we'll be wearing while we're learning our Reading and Writing!
